Dries Van Noten was born in1958, in Antwerp and he is the third generation in a family of tailors. From his education at a Jesuit school and his family background ensured that he was introduced to the world of fashion, its rites and traditions from the youngest age. In 1970s his father opened a large fashion boutique in Antwerp where he sold collections by Ungaro, Ferragamo and Zegna. At the same time, his mother ran a Cassandre franchised store and collected antique lace and linen.
However, he soon decided that he was more interested in designing fashions than selling them. In 1976, at the age of 18, he entered the fashion design course of Antwerp’s Royal Academy. While continuing his studies, Van Noten began to work as a freelance designer for commercial collections for a Belgian manufacturer.
This practical experience would prove invaluable when he started to produce and retail his own designs. The same year he met Christine Mathys who would be his business partner and tireless champion until her death in 1999.
For the SS 2012 collection Dries Van Noten that makes him looking like a stylish outdoor man. Almost everything he has created was waterproof. Dries Van Noten insisted that what he really had in mind were the clothes men wear for outdoor pursuits like fishing, riding, and hunting.
