MARTIN MARGIELA: IN HIS OWN WORDS
DOC NYC 2019
CPH:DOX, New Zealand
The elusive fashion designer reflects on his career.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In 2008, after a show celebrating the 20th anniversary of his fashion house, Maison Margiela, visionary designer Martin Margiela left the fashion world for good. Throughout his career, the Belgian designer remained anonymous, refusing interviews and never being photographed, leading some to call him the fashion world’s answer to Banksy. Now, more than a decade after his departure, Margiela digs into his meticulous and idiosyncratic personal archives to reflect on his revolutionary career and legacy.
