Break out the Laffy Taffy and ribbon candy. Winner of this year’s Dutch Design Award for Product Design and Jewelery, Iris Van Herpen is Amsterdam’s rising fashion star. Having worked under Alexander McQueen and Viktor & Rolf, Van Herpen’s got a resume to end all resumes. Her works are like something out of IMAX. The 3-D creations look like lemon meringues ready for consumption. Willy Wonka-ready, if you will. Definitely one of my favorites of the moment.
