Paris honours Martin Margiela, during the Paris Fashion Week with "Margiela / Galliera, 1989-2009", the first exhibition in the French Capital entirely dedicated to the Belgian fashion designer.
The exhibition, set in the halls of Palais Galliera from March 3rd to July 15th, 2018, traces the designer’s career, from Spring-Summer 1989 to Spring-Summer 2009, using more than 130 silhouettes, videos of défilés, House archival materials and special installations.
Martin Margiela (b. Louvain, 1957) graduated from the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, in 1980. After a period of apprendiceship as Jean Paul Gaultier’s assistant between 1984 and 1987, he has become the only Belgian designer of his generation to found his own Fashion House in Paris.
Famous as the mysterious designer “ without a face”, Margiela has never appeared on the catwalk for the twenty years he has exhibited in Paris , always avoiding interviews and public shows. On the contrary, he grants his collections "an opportunity for visibility" by exposing the inside and the portions of garments that normally remain hidden, such as interior trim, folds, straps, motifs and basting. By questioning both the "structure" of the garments and the fashion system, the designer has established himself as one of the greatest innovators of our time.
From the Oversize Collection, where he pushes the scale of his garments to extremes, enlarging the proportions to 200% to the Barbie Collection, which adapts dolls’ clothes to the life-size human form , by way of the Artisanal Collection, created from vintage garments and recovered materials transformed into unique hand-sewn pieces, Margiela/Galliera, 1989-2009 exhibition is a trip not to be missed to understand more not only about what lies behind his creations, but also behind a period of great changes in the fashion world.
The retrospective, of which Martin Margiela is also the artistic director, tells the audience about the twenty years of his work and offers an unprecedented look at one of the most influential contemporary fashion designers.
