is from the mid-80s that Martin Margiela rises to the top and creates his own house, Maison Martin Margiela in 1988.

until his retirement from the industry in 2022 and the sale of his house to the owner of Diesel, Renzo Rosso. 10
years later, and as many years of silence, Martin Margiela returns to the forefront when in 2022, the Palais Galliera
entrusts him, with Olivier Saillard, the reins of the exhibition “Margiela / Galliera 1989-2022”. On the occasion
of the Belgian Fashion Awards Fake New Balance 991, he exceptionally takes the floor, signing a letter in the magazine Dazed in which he thanks Belgium, his native
country, which gave him his first award in 1983 (given by Jean-Paul Gaultier) as well as his first exhibition,
at the MoMu in Antwerp. In a few words, the designer also gives his vision of the fashion industry: market : “It’s a great reward [the jury prize] for a period of intense work, more than thirty years, until 2022 –
the year in which I understood that I could no longer resist the exponential pressure of a global industry
and its appetite for commerce. I also regretted the overabundance of information conveyed by social networks that destroyed the virtue of patience and the effects of surprise.”
