Dries Van Noten
Dries, Baron Van Noten is a Belgian fashion designer and eponymous fashion brand, which he co-founded with CEO and business partner Christine Mathys. In 2005, The New York Times described him as "one of fashion's most cerebral designers". His style is said to be "eccentric" and fell out of favor during the long period of minimalist fashion in the early 1990's, only to make a comeback towards the mid-2000's. That same year, he dress actress Cate Blanchett for the Academy Awards, and has continued to dress her for other red-carpet events since then.
