© Ronald StoopsConceived in close collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela and curated by the Mode Museum, Antwerp, this exhibition is aiming to provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about the brand and its philosophy through a visual examination of themes that underpin the essence of the fashion house since its creation - from its deconstructivist, subversive design aesthetic and avant-garde couture to its understated branding, unusual boutique interiors and ‘trompe-l’oeil’ or optical illusion and its couture atelier white coats.
