a little bit of DRIES VAN NOTEN

BIOGRAPHY

BORN IN ANTWERP IN 1958, DRIES VAN NOTEN IS THE THIRD GENERATION IN A FAMILY OF TAILORS. BETWEEN THE TWO WORLD WARS, HIS GRANDFATHER REWORKED SECOND-HAND CLOTHES BY TURNING THEM INSIDE OUT AND INTRODUCED ANTWERP TO THE CONCEPT OF READY-TO-WEAR. DRIES VAN NOTEN OPENED A TINY EPONYMOUS BOUTIQUE IN ANTWERP’S GALLERY ARCADE.
