About Dries Van Noten

Dries Van Noten is a Belgian designer, graduating from the Royal Academy of fine arts in Antwerp.


In 1986, Dries Van Noten went to London during fashion week to showcase his collection together with fellow graduates Ann Demeulemeester, Walter van Beirendonck, Dirk Van Saene, Dirk Bikkembergs and Marina Yee.

From this point on, they would be known as the iconic ‘Antwerp Six’.


Dries Van Noten is known as the master of prints, creating and assembling different colors and layering them all on top of each other. A lot of his inspiration comes from his flower garden.


The silhouette is often very feminine, relaxed and sophisticated at he same time, being a wardrobe staple for modern women.


On why he doesn’t offer haute couture, but produces ready-to-wear garments, Dries Van Noten stated: “I’m a little naive but I don’t like the idea of showing things that you don’t sell in a store”.
