Here are some ipressions I wanted to share with you from the exhibition I visited recently.

Martin Margiela (check out his website!) is one of the most famous Belgian fashion designers. Born in 1959, Martin Margiela studied at the Antwerpen’s Fine Arts School(1980). Throughout his career, Martin Margiela has maintained an extremely low profile. He has never had his picture taken and remains backstage after his shows. All media contact is dealt with via fax. Maison Martin Margiela’s ultradiscreet trademark consists of a piece of cloth with the numbers 0-23 . The badge is attached to the inside with its four little white pick stitches, exposed to the outside on unlined garments.

In the exhibition he sowed lots of beautiful ideas, finished pieces as well as the process and photos of interiors of his shops and fashion shows, and very attractive invitation cards for his shows.

Waoh… SICK duck tape jacket!!! I wonder how long that took to make. I also wonder if it’s comfortable to wear. If you have an iPod and a duck tape fetish perhaps you should check out these cases made from duck tape. http://www.totallytape.com
