Editorial Gallery: Martin Margiela

published on 6 August 2004

Pushing Maison Martin Margiela's Design Download challenge even further, SHOWstudio invited four established creatives to work from Margiela's pattern to create a dress, to be photographed in a final shoot. Drawing on the idea of Maison Martin Margiela as the 'designer's designer', fellow fashion innovators Hussein Chalayan, Ann-Sofie Back and Swash were invited to complete their own version of Margiela's download, adding their fashion aesthetic to that of the Margiela team, alongside contemporary artist Alexis Marguerite Teplin. SHOWstudio viewers Claudia Rosa Lukas and Ada Fung/Elizabeth Holmstrow were also asked to send their dresses, originally showcased in the Submissions Gallery - to be photographed for this live event.
