Discover the world of Dries Van Noten at Design Film Festival 2017

A day in the life of an artist

Text: Andrea Sim

The designer, unravelled

There are few names who command the awe and admiration of their peers in the fashion sphere; the true luminaries few and far between. You have Miuccia Prada, Raf Simons, Rei Kawakubo, and of course, Dries Van Noten, the brilliant mind revered for his tactile designs and creative integrity. 

Welcoming an audience into his personal space for the very first time, Reiner Holzemer's film, Dries, shadows the designer for a year — documenting Van Noten both at work and at home. Showing in Singapore at the Design Film Festival 2017, mark your calendars to revel in the colourful world of the designer's unique fabrications and beautiful embroidery, or forever hold your peace.

The fashion film Dries will be showing at Design Film Festival 2017, from 1 - 10 September 2017.
