dries van noten is celebrating 30 years in the business. his fall 2017 collection marked his 1ooth fashion show. here is a peek at the show and the collection.
dries brought together models that have walked his runways over the years to this show to celebrate this landmark achievement and milestone….i mean have you ever heard of a designer staying anywhere for 30 years? remarkable and inspiring.
to continue this celebration a new documentary called Dries was just released. the film follows Van Noten over two years of work, interspersed with reflections over his past collections. We go inside his atelier, his office, his factories, and even his home as the director traces a unique vision from inspiration to conception, to fabric choices, to embroidery artisans in India, to rehearsals, to showtime.
next up a new book, dries van noten 1-100, that celebrates his 100 collections and the cinematic fashion shows he is legendary for.
fun fact- dries has never paid for advertising. in this world of self promotion and over marketing he has solely relied on his talent, his vision, his artistry and 100 beautiful and cinematic fashion shows- this is truly something to celebrate.
this post is dedicated to my dearest courtney tilinski- she loves dries.
