We Margiela at Guggenheim Bilbao November 8 organised by Rosa Orrantia, Persuade and the Aldama Fabre Gallery

Persuade was established in 1986 as Tarte, Persuade has become an internationally renowned shop for cultivating a rigorous and heterogeneous selection of the best fashion creators of our time. Not to mention that it is an amazing brick and mortar experience and a place I could easily spend hours in. It was one of the first shops in the world to distribute the collections of Maison Martin Margiela and therefore it makes total sense that Persuade will moderate the 60 minute talk after the screening with three members of the original Maison Martin Margiela team. If you are interested in attending please contact wemargiela@persuade.es.
