Dries Van Noten was a charter member of the collective of Belgian designers that disrupted the fashion culture with their avant-garde aesthetics and stylistic daring in the mid-1980s. All alumni of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, they became known as the Antwerp Six.
An influential and treasured presence in fashion for more than 30 years, Dries Van Noten follows an inner creative compass that is whisperingly impervious to fashion.
His clothes are crafted in extraordinary fabrics and prints, the large majority of which are conceived and exclusively created by Dries and his team. Van Noten’s vision, skill and devotion to the artistry of his designs elevates his work to transcend trends and time.
