Martin Margiela makes his debut as an artist. The first exhibition of renowned fashion designer’s works took place at the Lafayette Anticipations Art Foundation, during the José Parlá show. The exhibition coincided with the International Contemporary Art Fair in Paris.
On October 20, the Belgian designer’s debuted show took place. Show About Nothing featured works of art made of hair, dust, as well as just empty spaces. The reclusive designer uses the theme of hair because he grew up in a family of hairdressers.

Martin Margiela’s show will be available until January 2. The guests enter through the emergency exit and walk through a labyrinth of curtains. The artworks themselves are also covered with blinds. Visitors can touch some sculptures that remind of an unidentifiable body part.
