John Galliano boldly debuted his work for Maison Margiela at Paris Fashion Week and the presentation consisted of gender-neutral fashion that embraces expressivity and individuality. Although the week was centered around contemporary high-end womenswear, the Maison Margiela Spring/Summer 2019 runway was "a two-way street" as both male and female models strutted down the catwalk in deconstructed silhouettes that were heavily informed by the modern avant-garde.

The gender-neutral fashion ensembles were aptly referred to as "sliced-up experiments." From the lace detailing on skirts and sleek PVC inserts to topsy-turvy suits and cut-out outerwear, Maison Margiela's Spring/Summer 2019 presentation definitely turned heads in Paris. This may have been a result of the artistically sculptural quality of the silhouettes or simply because of the provocative exploration of gender-neutral fashion.
