Biomimicry in motion ∞ the ‘Poiesis’ cape-gown behind the scenes by @mollysjlowe. Abstract painting of warm terracotta shades are gradient-dyed on Duchesse-satin to then be heatbonded to mylar and lasercut in thousands of 0.8 mm fine waves that each are interlinked, dissecting the dress by each movement. The movement creates a three-dimensional bubble effect and is designed to move faster than the eye can follow. ∞ Show credits Styling: @patti_wilson Special thanks to collaborating artist: @anthony.howe.art Collaborating artist: @philip.beesley Casting: Maida Gregory Boina, @maximevalentini & @caromauger Model: @natalia_trnkova ∞ #irisvanherpen #hypnosiscouture #parisfashionweek

Behind each of her designs, there’s some sort of computer programming, physics and alchemy. All these combinations make it quite hard to explain.

The spherical ‘Omniverse’ sculpture, made by the extraordinary sculptor Anthony Howe, created meditative movement on the runway of the new ‘Hypnosis’ collection, encircling a state of hypnosis. Expressing a universal life cycle, it explores our relationship with nature and intertwines with infinite expansion and contraction. We are deeply thankful to have collaborated with Anthony Howe for the past five months on both the ‘Omniverse’ sculpture and the ‘Infinity’ finale dress. The dress comes alive on the breath of a finely balanced mechanism. ∞ Special thanks to collaborating artist: @anthony.howe.art Collaborating artist: @philip.beesley Video shots by @voguearabia and @wwd Styling: @patti_wilson Music direction: @sssalvadorrr Models: @rebekkame @sashakrvsh Casting: Maida Gregory Boina, @maximevalentini & @caromauger Make up: @silbruinsma1 & the @maccosmeticsfrance PRO Team Hair: @martincullen65 for @streetersldn ∞ #irisvanherpen #hypnosiscouture #parisfashionweek

Her works are like art pieces that models put on and showcase on quite an artsy runway as well.

Céline Dion, who had attended the show in a red, white and black dress that looked like a hazy column of fire, seemed mesmerized by dresses that seemed to vibrate with every step and breathe.

Her designs are simply… alive!
