3-D VI­SION

Lauded by the fash­ion and tech worlds alike, Iris van Her­pen is now the sub­ject of a ret­ro­spec­tive at the Dal­las Mu­seum of Art. Forty-five of the Dutch de­signer’s oth­er­worldly pieces will be on dis­play, culled from 15 col­lec­tions span­ning from 2008 to 2015 that trace her use of ex­per­i­men­tal ma­te­ri­als like iron fil­ings in resin, um­brella tines and mag­nets. At her spring 2017 “Be­tween the Lines” col­lec­tion, for ex­am­ple, Van Her­pen col­lab­o­rated with Canadian ar­chi­tect Philip Beesley on ex­pand­able laser-cut My­lar fab­rics, in ad­di­tion to in­cor­po­rat­ing polyurethane that was hand-painted through in­jec­tion mold­ing. Van Her­pen is best known for pi­o­neer­ing the use of 3-D print­ing technology in cloth­ing, a pro­duc­tion in­no­va­tion that landed her dresses on Time’s list of the Top 50 In­ven­tions of 2011. Her clien­tele list is equally im­pres­sive, and in­cludes fel­low bound­ary-push­ers Lady Gaga, Grimes and Björk, who sported van Her­pen on her Bio

philia al­bum cover and tour. Iris van Her­pen: Trans­form­ing Fash­ion runs un­til Aug. 20.
