According to WWD, the film will highlight the designer’s 25-year-long career in the fashion industry. Dries will showcase the designer’s atelier and home while following his production of four collections a year. Along with Van Noten, the film will also include interviews with industry insiders like Iris Apfel, Suzy Menkes and Pamela Golbin.
The documentary will be distributed by Dogwoof Pictures and was produced by Reiner Holzemer, who followed the designer around for a year. Holzemar revealed that getting Van Noten to participate in the film took some convincing, though:
“It took me a very long time to convince Dries to share his passions, his creative and intimate world in front of a camera. I followed him for a whole year, and I think I came as close to him and his world as it is possible. I hope the result is a very personal insight into his life and career.”
While there’s no official release date yet, Dries is expected to debut in 2017.
