I know I disappeared for a week after my trip to Coachella. Believe me, I didn’t mean to. I was really sick when I got back home and needed to recuperate. What I can tell you is that I had an amazing time…again! I also came home with a few war wounds from walking in the wrong shoes. It’s okay though considering all the great music I got to hear while I was there. You might remember a post I wrote in November of last year about the Iris van Herpen Exhibit at The High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Well I’m writing today to tell you that it’s not too late to check it out! I was fortunate to have a chance to see it and I was SO amazed by how beautiful her pieces are.
While you may think it’s weird to refer to dresses and shoes as “Pieces”, it’s really not all that strange. Iris van Herpen’s clothing is wearable art. The intricacy of her designs is mind blowing. The entire time I was at the exhibit, all I could keep asking my friend was, “How on Earth does she do this?” It’s a fair question considering how unbelievably difficult it looks to create just one small piece of the fabric. I can’t imagine how much time it would take to make a whole dress. It’s no wonder celebrities like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Björk have worn her clothing. I don’t even want to know how much a dress would cost. LOL! I was a picture snapping fool at the exhibit. It was easy to do too because her pieces photograph very well.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Gorgeous aren’t they? That’s why I urge you to get off your butt and go get some culture at The High Museum of Art if you live in Atlanta! The Iris van Herpen Exhibit will be available for viewing until May 15th.
Have you visited the Iris van Herpen Exhibit at The High? What were some of your favorite pieces?
Until next time…
