Exhibition: Margiela / Galliera, 1989-2009

As of tomorrow, and until July 15th, the musée de la mode de la Ville de Paris (Museum of the fashion of the City of Paris) will dedicate an important retrospective to the Belgian creator Martin Margiela (1957-). This rich fashion exhibition retraces a period of the fashion designer’s career, from spring-summer 1989 to spring-summer 2009. While working as the assistant of Jean Paul Gaultier, between 1984 and 1987, he mainly studied the structure of the garment. Thus, his collections consist of oversized clothes, enlarged up to 200 %, or human-sized doll clothes. Martin Margiela consistently deconstructed fashion throughout his course. More than 130 installations, archives, videos of shows or silhouettes reflect his genius, proving that Martin Margiela is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest contemporary fashion designers. This event is available just a few-minute walk away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, at the Palais Galliera.
