Martin Margiela after studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, works as a freelance designer collaborating with designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and in 1988 he founded his own fashion house in Paris. From that moment on, his tenacious will to evade conventional marketing and focus on product and design quality is very clear. Margiela deconstructs the clothes to give them new meanings through careful craftsmanship and the choice of high quality fabrics. Over the past 20 years Margiela and her team have created some of the most influential and appreciated collections in the history of fashion making the brand an icon of avant-garde style.
