Designer Martin Margiela in The Artist Is Absent

30 Apr

A new documentary about our favorite Belgian couturier is now streaming online. Produced by YOOX Group and directed by filmmaker Alison Chernick, this documentary shows you the force that is Margiela. From the his believable deconstruction pieces in the 90’s to the body conscious boldness in the mid-00’s. Margiela shows you that anything is possible even if you try your hardest to be annoymous. Moving to Paris in 1984 to work as a design assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier, then following his calling by starting his own label in 1988. You have to start somewhere. Be inspired and check out the short film first-shown at the Tribeca Film Festival.
