Martin Margiela became known for his ubiquitous deconstruction and transformation, in which he reinvented the volumes and shapes of a garment. He often modified found object's original use, playfully turning them on their head. Margiela's vision was always to maintain the focus on the clothes.

In the latter half of the past century, Martin Margiela made his name synonymous with avant-garde and deconstructivism movements in fashion. His label's philosophy lay in absolute creative freedom and independence from the general laws of clothing design: starting from jewelry made out of dyed ice and ending with presentations held on the outskirts of Paris. Throughout his career in the industry, the designer did his utmost to preserve the anonymity behind his image, rarely giving an interview or revealing his face. Even in the group photos of Margiela's team, one chair always remained empty — the one meant for the designer himself.
