Assuming we were attending a regular fashion show, we entered the Gashouder on Thursday night to see Iris van Herpen. But there was nothing regular about this show, we were in for a treat! Instead of the average collection presentation Iris van Herpen teamed up with dance organization Zero (ZERO by Nanine Linning) and surprised us with a modern dance performance. A group of dancers dressed in Iris van Herpen’s black creations from her couture collection of 2012 moved around the catwalk in their very own particular way. Their performance had a sense of modernity, it felt futuristic, yet at the same time it seemed very creature-like and close to nature, mostly because of the costumes. Fashion wise the story didn’t evolve through the act, but a true spectacle it was!
