Directed by Reiner Holzemer | 2019 | 90 minutes | Not Rated | Germany & Belgium | English and French with English Subtitles

An intimate profile of Martin Margiela, one of the most revolutionary and influential fashion designers of his time. Martin Margiela: In His Own Words follows Margiela from Jean Paul Gaultier’s assistant to creative director at Hermes to leading his own brand, as he never showed his face publicly but reinvented fashion with his radical style for over 20 years, through 41 provocative collections.

For the first time, the “Banksy of fashion” reveals his drawings, notes and personal items, giving us an exclusive peek to his vision and career. Martin Margiela: In His Own Words features interviews with, among others, Jean Paul Gaultier, Carine Roitfeld, Trend Forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, Fashion Critic Cathy Horyn and Fashion Historian Olivier Saillard. The score has been composed by the Belgian rock band dEUS.
