This is the catalogue for what was the first solo exhibition by Maison Martin Margiela (which had been in business for 9 years, 4 days, and 1615 hours at the time of the exhibition, hence the title), which was held at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam in 1997.

This ambitious exhibition featured work from Margiela’s previous collections (ranging from Spring/Summer 1989 to Autumn/Winter 1997/98), as well as a collaboration with Dutch Microbiologist Dr. A.W.S.M van Egeraat, in which outfits were treated with different strains of bacteria, yeast, and mould, which progressively altered the colour and texture of the garments during the course of the show.

Produced to accompany the exhibition, this book is divided into three sections: one of which provides background information on the fashion house, another of which details the exhibited garments and the last of which provides explanatory information on bacteria and microbiology.
