Akari-Lisa Ishii had completed an atypical lighting for the first retrospective exhibition dedicated to Martin Margiela in Paris at Palais Galliera (The Mode Museum), from March 3 to July 15. This exhibition of avant-garde fashion designer led her to create graphic and daring effects to stay in adequacy with his works.
The exhibition traced the career of the Belgian designer who questioned on both the structures of clothing and apparel systems. The couturier created remarkable collections with radically different styles at each season, represented on each podium of the exhibition. This strong work required a very elaborate scenography and lighting, adapted to each sector.
But it is also the art director, Martin Margiela himself, very present during the assembly, which incited the designer to go beyond the usual codes with striking aspects (a round of light scalop on the wall, warm white and cold white next to each other, shapes of graphical light effects ...) corresponding to the style and staging of the fashion show of each collection.
