Margiela bows out to Raf?

Tonight Martin Margiela will present his "20th anniversary" spring 2009 collection during Paris Fashion Week. The buzz around Paris is that Margiela is looking for his successor. The 51-year-old designer met with fellow Belgian designer Raf Simons (who we LOVE) earlier this year, when Simons was renegotiating his contract with Jil Sander. I believe Raf Simons would be an extremely competant successor to Martin Margiela. Will it happen? We will have to wait and find out.

Just FYI, Simons has since signed to stay on at Jil Sander for another three years; this does not mean he can not sign on to Margiela as well.
