Google his Doll's Wardrobe collection and you'll come up with a few hits. I have a few scanned on my tumblr if you'll go through the Martin Margiela tag.

i was actually looking through both of my margiela books a few days ago and i sat sort of stuck on the pages with the doll clothes collection. easily one of my favourites and really one of his funniest collections. MM had such a great sense of humour. he was the bernhard willhelm of his generation.

I watched this documentary about Jean Paul Gaultier and it was very interesting to see how much Gaultier influenced Margiela.
His 80's work was mostly about reproduction/customization and the way he used to present his collections. The more surprising thing was the non-logo of his clothes. Gaultier wanted his clothes to be recognisable without logo so he used a trick which (IMO) inspired Margiela for his stichings.

I would love to know the Documentary you have mentioned. Seems interesting.

It's a french documentary. Basically, Gaultier is telling his fashion story by re-doing his iconic old garnments.
You can see it for 1 week

Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpKOeogZvWM

Thanks! Thought it seems it's not available in my country. I hope it was good. However we have recently had a exhibition of Gaultier's work and you can definitely see the parallels to Martins, or more so the influence he has on him. Thanks again.

Didier Grumbach, the head of the French Fashion Chamber said in an Interview recently that Margiela was Gaultier's assistant so it all makes sense.

Yes, Martin was his assistant and of course you'll see Gaultier influence in his designs but considering how radically different their aethetic seems to have been (for the general public), it's still interesting to see how influent Gaultier was to Margiela.

I wish we could see that infamous graduation collection of MM.

Thanks so much for that doc Lola.

I get the impression many many people don't realize just how influential Gaultier was-- not only to Margiela, but to so many designers, that in turn, became icons in the industry and influenced others. Gaultier will always be one of the original kernels that spawned a forest. If people dismiss Gaultier as the designer that does camp and kitsch and designs costumes for pop stars, then they're only seeing a very very small part of his arsenal and they're not bothering to dig just a little deeper into his archive. The man is a truly one of the most versatile visionaries in high fashion. And in only one of his collections, he had more ideas in it than 10 collections from most designers. I feel Gaultier influenced the fashion industry in a very organic and subconscious way that people didn't even realize his influence in their own designs.

I'm still learning so much from this incredible visionary.
