Part-Time Visual Merchandiser - Dries Van Noten (Los Angeles)


Company profile
Dries Van Noten was a charter member of the collective of Belgian designers that disrupted the fashion culture with their avant-garde aesthetics and stylistic daring in the mid-1980s. All alumni of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, they became known as the Antwerp Six. 
In 1986 he established his own label and opened his first boutique in the Belgian fashion capital, and in 1993 brought his women’s collection to the Paris runways.
His clothes are crafted in extraordinary fabrics and prints, the large majority of which are conceived and exclusively created by Dries and his team. Van Noten’s vision, skill and devotion to the artistry of his designs elevates his work to transcend trends and time.
