“The Artist is Absent: A Short Film on Martin Margiela” “The Artist is Absent,” A Short Documentary About Martin Margiela Premieres Online this Month Fashion loves a spectacle, which works out well since very few designers don’t enjoy the spotlight. Sure, someone like Raf Simons might prefer to let his designs do the talking, but we all know what he looks like and even he agreed to be filmed for the Dior and I documentary. Martin Margiela will make no such concessions. Instead of agreeing to an interview, he gave director, Alison Chernick, the names of people who might tell his story best.   Luckily, Chernick got what she needed out of them—people like designer Jean-Paul Gaultier and fashion critic Suzy Menkes were more than happy to talk talk Margiela with her.
