Fashion designer Iris van Herpen marries precision and meticulous handcraft, inventive technological solutions, and a striking, futuristic aesthetic. Organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and Groninger Museum, The Netherlands, Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion gathers seven years of van Herpen’s original haute couture for this exhibition: her first North American tour. On view through May 1 at Carnegie Museum of Art, it presents 15 of her collections across a bewildering range of materials and techniques.

Celebrities like Beyonce, Bjork, Lady Gaga, and Scarlett Johansson have sought her luxe, otherworldly dresses. "Transforming Fashion" at CMOA is a rare chance to experience the broad sweep of her extraordinary designs together in one place.
