Titled Dries, the film will focus on Van Noten’s career – from when he started in the late 80s, after graduating from the fashion design course of Antwerp’s Royal Academy, right up to the present day.

According to Variety, Dries will feature interviews with the designer and his team, in addition to style icon Iris Apfel, fashion critic Suzy Menkes and Pamela Golbin, who is the chief curator of fashion and textiles at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

While a release date has not yet been set, it is understood that the film will be directed by Reiner Holzemer – the filmmaker behind the 2008 documentary about American photographer William Eggleston, William Eggleston: Photographer.
