ABOUT ME

IRIS DILS

Fashion Designer & Artist

“Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It’s movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we’d like to be.”

Hello, I’m a Fashion Designer & Artist from Belgium.

From the world of fashion and textile design I learned to create a link with my artistic creativity. Not the portability of the design prevails but the idea of line, colour and shape that I want to express.

For me, fashion is an expression of identity combined with desire, moods and a cultural setting.

As I’m offered a place on the highly intensive fashion programme of Central Saint Martins (CSM) at the University of the Arts London (UAL), I will continue to demonstrate my deep commitment to fashion.

PASSIONATE

Designing fashion is my passion and a real eureka moment.

“Movement, sculptures, shapes and colours are expressions of how I see the world. It shows my personality combined with emotion, feeling and culture.” – Iris Dils
