Maison Margiela are renowned for their live shows in peculiar settings, such as empty metro stations and street corners, showcasing their deconstructive and avant-garde designs using unconventional materials. Models’ faces are often covered by fabric or long hair to direct attention to their designs. Margiela resigned as creative designer in 2009 and John Galliano took over the role in 2014.
Artisanal is the term used by Maison Margiela for its haute couture collections. With John Galliano’s creativeness, the ideas, techniques and proposals developed for the Artisanal collection inform every other aspect of the fashion house, through the prêt-à-porter and avant-première lines. Their product lines include womenswear, menswear, fine jewellery, footwear, objects, fragrance, and home goods, among others.
