To introduce the latest Dries van Noten collection in Paris, the designer used various Matrix Frames with fabric graphics as photoshoot backgrounds for the new designs. The Matrix Frames also featured prominently in the backstage lounge area for the afterparty.
Born in Antwerp in 1958, Dries van Noten is the third generation in a family of tailors. At the age of 18, Dries entered the fashion design course of Antwerp’s Royal Academy. On graduating, he began to freelance as a consultant designer before starting his own collection of menswear in 1986. Positive reaction was almost immediate with orders placed by prestigious customers like Barneys New York, Pauw in Amsterdam and Whistles in London.
Throughout his career, van Noten has dressed actors for the Academy Awards, the Queen of Belgium for state visits and designed for various contemporary dance companies, including Justin Peck at the New York City Ballet, as well as collaborating with artist David Michalek on his performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
