Iris van Herpen.

Iris van Herpen is a designer from the Netherlands. The first three photos are from her most recent collection, "Chemical Crows". All wings and garments are created from gold-brass, leather and hair. Her previous collections, "Machine Jewelery" (picture 4) and "Fragile Futurity" also consist of mainly leather and hair. Most of her designs are not engineered for everyday use. I'm really glad to see a designer creating pieces for the aesthetic value, not solely working under the pressure of practicality.
