DRIES VAN NOTEN BOOK CELEBRATES 100 COLLECTIONS
A SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY
Dries Van Noten has reached the 100 collections mark and the Belgian designer is celebrating. He first commemorated this important milestone during his fall women’s ready to wear show in Paris by rounding up generations of runway models, including Nineties favorites Amber Valletta, Carolyn Murphy, Alek Wek, Cecilia Chancellor, Erin O’Connor, Guinevere Van Seenus and Nadja Auermann, who shared the catwalk with the hot models of today.
Part two is a two-volume retrospective book that chronicles the 100 collections designed by Van Noten, unveiled via hundreds of unpublished photos, backstage reportage, invitation, inspirations, atmosphere and venues. The first volume is titled “Dries Van Noten 1-50” and the second “Dries Van Noten 51-100.” Journalists Susannah Frankel and Tim Blanks wrote the texts.
