Maison Martin Margiela
Martin Margiela was born in Leuven, Belgium in 1957. He studied at Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in 1980. He first worked in Paris under Jean Paul Gaultier and showed his first collection under his own label in 1989. Margiela is an exceptionally enigmatic figure, avoiding contact with press and remaining virtually anonymous. The fashions produced by Maison Martin Margiela are deconstructed, elegant, daring, and mysterious. Martin Margiela retired from his position as creative director in 2009, but the brand has successfully continued his legacy.
Maison Martin Margiela was published by Rizzoli New York in October 2009, and exclusively designed by Margiela. It provides a window into the intimate world of this fashion designer.
