Celebrating Margiela's 20th Anniversary

A host of designers including Raf Simons, Gareth Pugh and Haider Ackermann turned up at Maison Martin Margiela's 20th anniversary show on Monday.

TAKING AMERICA: Australian singer Micky Green said she’s out to conquer the U.S., where her debut album, “White T-Shirt” hasn’t yet been released. “I’m leaving Paris tomorrow to meet with Motown and another label,” Green said at the Martin Margiela show Monday night. Green has just shot her latest video in Berlin. “It’s aesthetic rather than a story,” she said, adding there are looks from Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Sonia Rykiel. Elodie Bouchez, meanwhile, is likewise heading Stateside, to shoot the first full feature film by director Zeina Durra in New York in January. Fellow French actress Clotilde Hesme said she’s just started filming “Le Dernier Jour du Monde” (The Last Day of the World) with French directing duo, the Larrieu brothers in the South of France while her latest movie, “De La Guerre” (Of the War), also starring Asia Argento, is released this week. “It’s all very positive and joyous,” she joked of the films subject matter. A host of designers included Raf Simons, Gareth Pugh, Haider Ackermann plus the Proenza Schouler duo. “Margiela is always way ahead of everybody,” said Schouler’s Jack McCollough.
