Directed by Reiner Holzemer • Documentary • With Dries Van Noten, Iris Apfel, Pamela Golbin • 2018 • 90 minutes
For the first time, fashion designer Dries Van Noten allows a filmmaker to accompany him in his creative process and rich home life. For an entire year, Reiner Holzemer documented the precise steps that Dries takes to conceive of four collections, the rich fabrics, embroidery, and prints exclusive to his designs. As well as the emblematic fashion shows that bring his collections to the world and have become cult“must sees’ at the Parisian Fashion week. This film offers an insight into the life, mind and creative heart of a Master Fashion Designer who, for more than 25 years, has remained independent in a landscape of fashion consolidation and globalization.
"This film about Belgian designer Dries Van Noten is a cut above the rest." —South China Morning Post
