'It took me a very long time to convince Dries to share his passions, his creative, and intimate world in front of a camera.'

In the new documentary Dries, set for a 2017 release, Belgian designer Dries Van Noten becomes the latest name in fashion to receive a documentary about his career, following in the footsteps of Anna Wintour in The September Issue, and Raf Simons in Dior and I.

Filmmaker Reiner Holzemer sold the film to Dogwoof Pictures, the distributor behind other high-profile fashion flicks like Iris and The First Monday in May.

Dries covers the designer's career and focuses in on a year in the business, where Dries works on four separate collections from both his home and atelier. The doc will feature talking head-style interviews with some of fashion's most famous names, like Iris Apfel and and Suzy Menkes.

"It took me a very long time to convince Dries to share his passions, his creative and intimate world in front of a camera," said Holzemer in Variety's report. "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."

"Reiner's access to the personal and creative mind of Dries is captivating. Van Noten is one of the most private fashion designers out there and it is a privilege to represent the first film ever made about him, and to witness his creative process," said a Dogwoof representative.
