MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA SPRING SUMMER 1993, MAKE-UP BY INGE GROGNARD. TEXT PUBLISHED IN FRENCH VOGUE oktober 1992.

'Inge Grognard/Ronald Stoops' is a book published by Ludion with the work of photographer Ronald Stoops and make-up artist Inge Grognard.

MARTIN MARGIELA: 'I HAVE KNOWN INGE FOR A LONG, LONG, LONG TIME NOW AND MET RONALD, THROUGH HER, A LONG, LONG TIME AGO. I LIKE THE FACT THAT THEY BOTH DEVELOPED THEIR ARTISTIC CAREER INDEPENDENTLY AND IN A HIGHLY INDIVIDUAL WAY, WHICH IS RARE. BUT WHAT I ADMIRE MOST IS THEIR COLLECTIVE WORK, THOSE MOMENTS WHEN THEY CREATE SOMETHING TOGETHER AND THIS MAGICAL ‘FUSION’ OCCURS. EVEN THOUGH IT SPANS MANY YEARS OF THEIR WORK, THIS BOOK DOES NOT EXPRESS A FEELING OF NEW OR OLD. FOR ME IT IS EVIDENCE OF THEIR CONSTANT STRIVE TOWARDS A JOINT AESTHETIC. WE STARTED AROUND THE SAME TIME AND WERE BOTH DRIVEN TO CREATE THAT (SO ASPIRED TO) ‘SOMETHING DIFFERENT’. IT IS NO WONDER THAT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, WE CONTINUED, SEPARATELY OR TOGETHER, TO SURPRISE EACH OTHER. I AM PROUD THAT WE CAN SHARE TODAY THESE PRECIOUS IMAGES THAT WILL SPEAK OF US FOREVER.'
