Maison Martin Margiela Exhibition, London


Simply delicious is the only way to describe the exhibition of Maison Martin Margiela at Somerset House here in London. If you haven't been yet, its open tonight until 8.00pm so there really is no excuse. This is simply the must see show to see this Summer. The emotional response to this exhibition I can only liken to the Viktor and Rolf exhibition at the Barbican a couple of years ago - extraordinary, cleansing, inspiring, and where we need to be. This exhibition "pays tribute to 20 years [of Margiela] and salutes one of the world's most influential fashion houses". Even from the entrance along the embankment, trees are wrapped in White fabric, a caravan complete with plasma screen showing excerpts from Maison Martin's show play on a loop and images of work are fly posted on the entrance. I could hardly drag myself to leave this exhibition and I am certainly going to make another visit. Simply the hottest thing in London right now, if only life was like this every day. I wont give too much away, just go and see it. I am in awe.
