maison martin margiela 'this site is not under construction'

belgian fashion designer martin margiela has been showing his avant-garde clothing creations for 20 years. over the years he has made a name for himself thanks to his non-traditional garments and mysterious personality. adding to the allure is the maison martin margiela website. visitors to the site are greeted with a faux dialog box styled like the windows operating system. further into the site, navigation has been styled to make it look like an ftp site or digital archive. clicking images brings up larger boxes and visitors are sporadically greeted with pop-up ads and fake ms-dos style windows. this digital mash-up is quite appropriate for margiela deconstructed fashion lines which often take ordinary objects and turn them into haute-couture.

this october marked the 20th anniversary of maison martin margiela. the fashion museum antwerp is presenting an exhibition to commemorate the event. ‘maison martin margiela (20) the exhibition’ is running from september 12, 2008 – february 8, 2009.
