Anonymous, “Lorraine O’Grady meet Martin Margiela.” Illustrated fashion blog article claims Margiela’s “blouse of gloves” rips off Mlle Bourgeoise Noire. yayayanonono.wordpress.com, February 4, 2010.
Lorraine O’Grady meet Martin Margiela There is a lot of internet buzz about a huge Margiela collection coming up for auction and it brought this piece back in front of my eyes. Where had I seen this piece before, I wondered. So familiar. Then I remembered that Lorraine O’Grady made a dress of white gloves back in 1980 as part of her Mlle Bourgeoise Noire persona.
