Designer: Maison Martin Margiela

"Martin Margiela (born April 9, 1957 in GenkBelgium) is a Belgian fashion designer. He studied at Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts along with the legendary avantgarde fashion collective the Antwerp Six. Many still consider him to be the "7th" member of the collective.

After graduation in 1980 he worked as a freelance designer for five years. Between 1985 and 1987 he worked for Jean Paul Gaultier, before showing his first collection under his own label in 1989. Between 1997 to 2003 he became, despite his non-traditional design, the creative director of the Hermès women's line.
During the 1980s, the Japanese avantgardists, with Rei Kawakubo—creator of the label Comme des Garçons—had turned the fashion scene upside-down with their eccentric and ground-breaking designs. Martin Margiela and the Antwerp Six would carry on the work, revolting against the luxurious fashion world with garments of oversized proportions such as long arms, and with linings, seams and hems on the outside. The concept of deconstruction, also embraced by the aforementioned Rei Kawakubo, is important for the understanding of Martin Margiela's fashion statement. Margiela famously redesigns by hand objects such as old wigs, canvases and silk scarves into couture garments."

Maison Martin Margiela S/S 2012

Haute Couture: Spring/Summer 2012
Maison Martin Margiela presented “ARTISANAL” their spring/summer 2012 collection at Le Bar du Comptoir Général in Paris. 

"Maison Martin Margiela's Artisinal line manages to be both the apotheosis and the antithesis of haute couture. It is, of course, crafted by hand, each garment and accessory constructed to be a complete one-off. That's the very essence of haute couture, some may argue the reason it continues to exist at all. There will always be a customer who demands the unique."Report by Alex Fury .

Designer: Alexander Wang

"At age 18, he moved to New York City to attend Parsons The New School for Design to study fashion design. After dropping out in his sophomore year, he launched his first women's ready-to-wear collection in 2007. The label embodies casually cool downtown style, drawing inspiration from the nineties, French chic, and rock grunge—always finished off with a slouchy, rolled-out-of-bed edge. Wang launched a diffusion line of pre-weathered cotton tees, tanks, and T-shirt dresses in spring 2009, T by Alexander Wang, as well as a footwear collection of towering platform sandals. He won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2008, an honor accompanied by a $200,000 award to expand one's business. His lines are now stocked globally by more than 30 of the world’s premiere retailers including Barneys New YorkNeiman MarcusBergdorf GoodmanDover Street MarketBrownsOtte and Selfridges."
