On a platform, a model lay under a dress that fanned out like a net, unperturbed by the guests filing into Iris van Herpen's show. Around her, hidden under organic-looking concessions, three robotic arms stood in repose. 

For next summer, it will be abbreviated dresses and gossamer pieces that, like cobwebs, are probably full of tensile resistance. A voluminous coat was cinched at the waist by a belt, offering a zen outlook. Well-cut high-waisted trousers shimmered, cut from transparent material set with shiny stones. Membranous tops clung prettily to their wearer. A net of organic shapes competed with geometric ones, looking as if they had been drawn with the textile version of the Lix pen. 

The robotic arms flexed slowly, minutely. 

At the crossroads of arts, science, and other humanities, the Dutch designer offered true intellectual fashion, one that required a dose of engineering in the sense that it is the composite of technology and human intervention. The appeal of van Herpen's work lies in her mastery of materials that look like they can be neither cut nor sewn. Translated into a ready-to-wear proposal, the garments are eminently more wearable than her couture, but they still looked as though they ought to be labeled serialized couture rather than something you can grab off the racks. Her mélange of 3D printing, weaving, and laser cutting brings the full tilt of progress to bear on a dress that looked like a simple cream number, until it got its close-up. 

Still, the robotic arms didn't move further than a breath. Yet they had incrementally woven more of the dress, a quasi-invisible inching forward that yields discernible, tangible results. That is the perfect metaphor for the significance of Iris van Herpen's work in the grand scheme of fashion things.
