MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA ’20′ The Exhibition

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

If you are going to London, make sure you stop  at the Somerset House, that, for this summer, till September 5th is hosting  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 captures 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. 20 years on, Maison Martin Margiela’s radical questioning and rethinking of what fashion is, how we clothe the body and ideals of human beauty, are still as groundbreaking as ever.
