Interesting Facts

The origin of the fashion company Maison Martin Margiela is in Belgium. Martin Margiela studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. He was Jean-Paul Gaultier's assistant for a while and later chief designer for women's fashion at Hermès. During this time, he founded his own fashion company, Maison Martin Margiela, with a Brussels retailer.

Fashion is brought to the forefront through a variety of means. The models on the catwalk are always masked, in the catalogs they are made unrecognizable with black bars in front of their faces. The company also does not have a logo. Only four stitches of basting thread show garments by Martin Margiela as a distinctive mark.

Martin Margiela's favorite color is reflected in many elements of the company. For example, the company's headquarters in Paris are in white, as is the first fragrance called "(untitled)" - so as not to distract from anything or point to anything.
