Dries Van Noten is based in Antwerp and entirely self-financed. The brand is itellegent and truly special. Van Noten was a graduate of Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He became part of the Antwerp Six, which also included Ann Demeulemeester and Dirk Bikkembergs. His collection of silks and sharp tailoring stormed the runways in Paris and he became a huge success.
After graduating from Antwerp’s Royal Academy in 1986 he produced his own line of menswear pieces that were immediately bought by Barneys New York and Whistles London. Decades later, the designer continues to be one of the most highly regarded in the world because of his technical designs and unique sensibility.
