AnOther Magazine get an exclusive look inside Maison Martin Margiela‘s atelier during Couture Week. Following their fifth showing of Margiela Artisinal — their haute couture collection — the house show us their unique “reuse, recycle and reinvent” approach to extravagant dress-making. The magic takes place in a former convent turned orphanage turned industrial design school, where lab coat-wearing young artisans — atypical of the aged experts normally seen in couture work — blast classic and hip-hop music while deconstructing, reversing, re-sewing and embroidering the garments. Sourcing materials from private auctions and flea markets, Margiela is said to bring “trash to treasure” and “recompose [them] like an exquisite corpse.” You can read more details on the atelier here.
