Martin Margiela, the "Greta Garbo of fashion," is lurking somewhere out of sight at the Palais Galliera in Paris where a huge retrospective of his work opened Friday.Two new Paris exhibitions lift a little of the mystery that surrounds Margiela, arguably the most influential designer of the last 30 years.Raf Simons, the former Dior designer now leading Ralph Lauren, said that Margiela changed fashion forever that night in 17 joyous and shambolic minutes.Instead, Margiela cast his friends – the more odd and original the better – in his shows.In the case of the clothes Margiela made from coat and dress linings, he literally turned fashion inside out.As far back as 2000, when the trend was for skin-tight, Margiela had invented oversized, which nearly two decades later is still one of fashion's most dominant looks.While the second Margiela show at the Museum of Decorative Arts, which opens on March 22, will concentrate on his five years at the luxury brand Hermes, the Galliera exhibition uses over 1,000 objects from his archives to illustrate his 20-year career.
