Feature: “Iris” the latest fashion collage from Rotterdam






By: Iris van Gelder

Rotterdam, The Netherlands




Here is the second of a running series of fabulous collages submitted by Rotterdam-based artist, Iris van Gelder. We love to see how fashion can inspire each person’s perspective. Spring is around the corner, so let us be inspired by “Iris”…by…Iris. ;-)




The Autumn/Hiver 2011/2012 collection by Givenchy was covered with Iris flowers. I was totally in love (for obvious reasons, and hoping Riccardo reads this and send me some pieces;-)). I saw the shoot of Bette Franke (top Dutch model) in WSJ Magazine and got inspired to make a print mania collage. The background is the original Givenchy print advertisement.



*Iris loves making collagesThis creative process allows her to rethink existing images and create her own world with them. Sometimes she’s critical and other times she wholly embraces the consumer society. Forms and shapes are really important to Iris, as they are like pieces to her puzzle. Check her works out at fasttrash.tumblr.com.
