Thanx for the help... i was trying to find pics of the menswear collections but firstview only seems to have womens. I already know many places i can purchase margiela but I would like to see pictures more of the collection so i can order, haha...(besides the stuff from aloharag and browns).
At the vanguard of avant-garde designers, Martin Margiela is a master of
reworking existing clothes, fabrics and objects to create new garments and
accessories. Attributing this quest to transform as born from a wish to treat
the preciseness of the structure of a particular garment as a design challenge,
this downloadable unfinished pattern gives an opportunity to engage in this
process of mutation and innovation. The simple shift dress pattern, without
sleeves and with no hemming, is the basis to make a design of your own
conception - by augmentation and addition. As if joining the actual designers at
the key stage in the making of a garment, this is your raw material to shape
into the new.
I remember seeing a pic(one of the rarest,at that)of him in Bazaar ages ago and he had blonde hair and those typical Flemish big blue eyes. And he wasn't wearing those lab coats but an Iggy Pop t'shirt so I knew it couldn't be one of his assistants.
if you find the video or something of the collection held in the big top about ten years ago, you can see him showing himself there at the end, wearing a hunting cap.
therefore, you cannot have a good view though.
he doesnt have blonde hair... and there is an old photo that i have hovering somewhere in an old magazine.. not bazaar.. as well as a priceless piece of footage from fashion tv many many years ago that went backstage and filmed him secretly but the cameras had to stop filming when the man himself realised what was going on... dont have access to the video footage as it is in storage in australia but i shall try and get the picture
