Dries Van Noten
Dries van Noten was born in a family with an ancient sartorial tradition. In 1981 he graduated together with the "Antwerp Six" class and, even before graduating, his student-created collections received important awards. In 1985 he founded his own brand which immediately gained international popularity. The style of the brand is characterized by the use of original prints, colors and fabrics. The use of classic shapes combined with technological and experimental materials, for the creation of garments in the ancient tailoring tradition, represent a distinctive feature of the designer.
