Having a film made about you is clearly all the rage these days - from Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow to Cara Delevingne, some of the fash pack's heavyweights are having their careers memorialised in film. The latest to join the doco-gang is Dries Van Noten. 

WWD reports that a film is being made to celebrate the designer's 25-year career, and that it will be filmed inside his home and atelier, following him as he designs his four collections for the year.

The site also reports that it apparently took some convincing to get Dries on board to begin with. Reiner Holzemer, the film's producer, told WWD, "It took me a very long time to convince Dries to share his passions, his creative and intimate world in front of a camera. 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." 

The film is expected to be released next year.
