Dries van Noten was practically born with a passion and love for fashion. With his father being a men’s outfitter and his grandfather a tailor, the Belgian designer had the opportunity to visit international fashion capitals at a young age, learning about the trade and gathering countless impressions for his future creations. Dries van Noten along with Walter van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Marina Yee and Dirk van Saene are the exceptionally talented Belgian designers who became known as the ‘Antwerp Six’ who graduated from their fashion studies at the prestigious ‘Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts’ in the 1980s and impressed the international fashion industry with an exhibition at the London Fashion Week. The designer has a particular instinct about clothing, special fabrics and colours, subtle hints and virtuoso patterns.
