Maison Margiela

Martin Margiela founded his maison in Paris 1988. He had no money at the time, but wielded with ambition and unparalleled talent he shook the fashion world to its' core. Deconstructed, used clothing from Paris' vintage boutiques was paired with saran wrap heels and two toed tabi boots put on masked models and shown in old cinemas, laundry mats and ghettos. It stood in stark contrast with the glamorous and grand fashion shows at the peak of Parisian chic.
