It seems the film industry is finally waking up to the wealth of story material the fashion world has to offer. In addition to two possible biopics in the works about Alexander McQueen, and a secretive film about the New York fashion industry in the 1950s from P.T. Anderson, now Dogwoof Pictures has a movie about Dries Van Noten.

Variety reports that the company bought the rights to the Dries, a documentary by Reiner Holzemer (who wrote, directed, and produced the film), and will release it theatrically next year. The film follows the designer though a year’s worth of collections (he produces four), while also looking back over his career, giving viewers both a biography of the man, as well as some insight as to how he works.

In addition to speaking with the man himself, other notable fashion names appear in the film, including Iris Apfel, Suzy Menkes, and Pamela Golbin. Van Noten is famously one of the Antwerp Six, a cohort of designers to come out of Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp in the 1990s. Perhaps if the film goes well, we can expect more films on other members?

For those looking for a primer on revolutionary Belgian fashion designers, there is the short documentary The Artist is Absent, about the mysterious Martin Margiela, who was a few semesters behind Noten in school.
