Couturier Iris van Herpen joins forces with Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness to create a new Crystallization dress during a live broadcast on 3rd – 9th April 2013. Knight will capture Guinness being splashed with black and clear water using high speed cameras, and then offer up the footage as reference imagery for van Herpen to create a one-of-a-kind water dress. During a week long live broadcast, SHOWstudio will showcase van Herpen’s ability to combine archaic crafts with futuristic technologies to create a shape shifting garment that defies logic. All the while, viewers from across the globe can put their questions to the designer and probe her inspirations, techniques and aspirations.

Artist Geoffrey Lillemon and sound artist Salvador Breed will also participate in the initiative and use Knight’s footage to create a film and soundscape to accompany van Herpen’s dress. In a final climax, Knight will shoot Guinness in the completed dress live on camera. Iris Van Herpen’s dress will be viewable to the public in SHOWstudio’s recently launched gallery venture, the SHOWcabinet, from June. The outcome of the project will be presented this autumn at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
