INSPIRATION: Iris Van Herpen’s ‘Cathedral Dress’




Yesterday I came across this absolutely mind bogglingly
 amazing dress by Iris Van Herpen, called “the cathedral dress”.
Reminiscent of an old gothic cathedral, the dress is made out of wood.
I find anything with such incredible detail and symmetrical pattern
so fascinating from an illustrators point of view.
If I had the patience (and time) I would love to draw this accurately.
But for now, I have drawn a rougher version.
I decided to draw it on brown paper to give the feel of the wood
while highlighting the skin with white chalk.
Watch out for more similar drawings of the Van Herpen couture,
 because I am seriously obsessed with this stuff!
