Marking each collection with a different number, Margiela launched its "6" collection for women in 1997. Maison Martin Margiela, who later described her second brand as MM6, is inspired by the everyday moments of life while designing this collection. Martin Margiela, who founded his own brand Maison Martin Margiela in 1988, is the first winner of the prestigious French Andam award. The Belgian designer, who graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Art, gained experience as an assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier before starting his brand. Transformation and reinterpretation, which are the main sources of inspiration for Margiela, stand out in all her designs.
