Maison Martin Margiela (20): The Exhibition
Maison Martin Margiela celebrates its 20th anniversary on the Antwerp Fashion Museum from 12 September 2008 through 8 February 2009. For this occasion, the Fashion Museum presents the unique exhibition, MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA ( 20) The exhibition. Maison Martin Margiela is especially known for its deconstructivist approach and its use of second-hand materials or materials with low commercial value. Unraveling the grammar of clothing, Maison Martin Margiela reveals the strategies of the fashion system as he constructs something radically new.
'MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA (20) The exhibition' is not a classic retrospective exhibition, but looks more deeply into the different themes and concepts that Maison Martin Margiela has explored during the 20 years of its various collections, fashion shows, presentations and events worldwide, design of its shops and offices, exceptional house style and communications policy.
Exclusively for this exhibition, Maison Martin Margiela will propose limited-edition items that will be on sale during the entire exhibition at the Fashion Museum reception desk.
