NEW YORK — Mystery man Martin Margiela, the French deconstructionist designer, has surfaced — here. On Tuesday the designer took a private stroll through the Madame Grès exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
The designer’s fall collection is being shown at stores in various cities around the world tonight. Margiela announced that he would make a surprise appearance at one of them. It appears that Charivari, which is hosting the New York event, is the lucky location.
