Maison Martin Margiela ‘20’ The Exhibition
A major exhibition celebrating 20 years of one of contemporary fashion’s most influential and enigmatic designers.
This ambitious, multi-layered exhibition captured Margiela’s unique aesthetic and vision, incorporating garments, installations, photography and film. This exhibition was initiated by the Fashion Museum Province of Antwerp and Maison Martin Margiela.
Young as its history is, no other fashion house has had quite the same impact on our understanding of fashion and its relationship to history, craft, commerce and innovation. Twenty years on, Maison Martin Margiela’s radical questioning and rethinking of what fashion is, how we clothe the body and ideals of human beauty, is still as groundbreaking as ever.
