Margiela, who labels each collection with a different number, launched the “6” collection for women in 1997. Maison Martin Margiela, which later called its second brand MM6, is inspired by everyday moments of life when designing this collection. Martin Margiela, who founded his own brand Maison Martin Margiela in 1988, is the first recipient of the prestigious French Andam award. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Art, the Belgian designer worked as an assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier before founding his brand he had gained experience. Transformation and reinterpretation, Margiela's main sources of inspiration, come to the fore in all her designs.
