Strike a Pose fashion films is supported by international streaming platform DocPlay. DocPlay presents a curated collection of thought-provoking documentaries from around the world.

About the Film:
Dries offers an insight into the life, mind and creative heart of acclaimed Belgian master designer Dries van Noten who, for more than 25 years, has remained independent in a landscape of fashion consolidation and globalisation. Reiner Holzemer documents the precise steps that Dries takes to create four collections in one year, rich with luxurious fabrics, hand-stitched embroidery and exclusive prints that come to life at emblematic must-see fashion shows at the Parisian Fashion week.

“The fashion industry has been dying in its own grave, and people like Dries keep the flame alive.” - Iris Apfel, fashion icon
