>> Martin Margiela Didn't Always Avoid Press
—Martin Margiela is legendary for being press shy — you'd be hard-pressed to find a picture of him — but when he was first starting out on his own in the late '80s and early '90s, he did some interviews and appearances.  Graca Fisher, who was a model in eight of Margiela's early shows and helped with sales at the time, thinks that the media circus just wasn't to his taste.  To illustrate, she describes a shoot for i-D magazine highlighting new designers, in which she and Margiela arrived at the Paris nightclub Palace. She was seated onstage and the photographer directed a man to rub his hands all over her.  When they left, she asked Margiela, "What was that all about?"  He replied, as she recalls, "Don't ask me. It was disgusting." [NY Times]
