PARIS, France — In the autumn of 1989, on a derelict playground in the outskirts of Paris, Martin Margiela staged a show like nothing the fashion world had ever seen: the seating plan was first come, first served; the front row was filled with local kids; the models were stumbling; the runway was uneven. The critics loathed it. The industry loved it.

Maison Martin Margiela 20 The Exhibition was a celebration of 20 years of Maison Martin Margiela, curated by the Antwerp Fashion Museum, MoMu. The exhibition itself was first open from December 2008 to August 2009 in Antwerp, where Martin Margiela studied fashion. It would travel to nearby regions like Munich and London afterwards. Visitors of the exhibition were surrounded by Margiela motifs, from Tabi boots to deconstructed garments to white atelier lab coats...

that evening, i go through a list of margielas in the belgian phone directory hoping that someone can bring a reality to the designer. there are about a dozen of them and i pick a number at random. someone answers almost immediately. “yes hello i’m writing a piece on martin margiela… ” i say. “he’s my brother,” interrupts a gentle, male voice on the other end. “but i don’t speak about him.” it is an abrupt call, but it confirms that martin margiela is real. he’s not a ghost or a woman.
