Renzo Rosso, President of the OTB Group (owner of Margiela, along with: Diesel, Marni Viktor & Rolf...) appointed John Galliano as the Creative Director not long after... that incident (October 2014).
Two things stand out in the appearance of Margiela in London - this is a Women's Wear collection showing on the last day of the Mens Collections - getting ahead of the competition to show, why?
1. Is he worried where his influences have come from, will we see it in other places and he can claim first past the post?
2. And why London? The PR machine states he's getting back to his routes from his student days here. It was an exclusive invitation list and a very particular group of journalists, who was he avoiding?
A big departure from last season for Margiela - although the man himself (Martin Margiela) is no longer associated with the brand he was quite the "Enfant Terrible" (use a heavy French accent). Very into deconstruction, seams on the outside an "avantgardist" if you like in the 1980's.
Aside from the fluff surrounding Galliano's appearance for Margiela, what did you think of the actual collection?

If you want to solve a problem, increase your turnover, consider the delivery of a new product or service, expand a division, drop a client - have you ever thought to discuss it with more than just the immediate influencers in your business? Okay, so maybe not all employees have your best interest at heart and you're managing a legacy business that has typically not given or listened to staff views in the past - Christmas parties have got out of hand... If you start listening and including, you start to see an empowered workforce that are not just there for the wage.
Here (10 minutes in) Paul Papadimitriou interviews Hiroshi "Mickey" Mikitani CEO of Rakuten, Viber... at LeWeb where Mickey describes the benefits of giving his developers the "down-time" or opportunity to work on anything they want.
Google do it, Apple do it the birds and the bees do it...

A gym body to curves in all the right places
A saviour that delights, chats that are aces.
Fixated on weight and previous partner,
Easily forgiven for being my garter.
My desire, my passion, my true love revealed
She is the one, all others repealed.
Our partnership, strong and true to behold
We enjoy great conversation, even when bold.
A tempered dark mood was once uncovered
"Leave me alone" is exclaimed, repeated; truth discovered.
Curled up, closed off, working it out
By morning there's apologies, just glad there's no stout.
She's in touch with her feelings, heart on her sleeve
A realist that sees beauty; now I believe.
My cold heart with the positive face
My life well lived not all good, some a disgrace.
Reintroduced to a life I once knew
Now delighted, constantly surprised, enjoying the view.
We've hard times and good, all are great,
Together we'll work on it, that's just our fate.

She is my delight, my twinkling star
Delivered so young and achieved so much
A young life lead with a path many would dream
Constantly inspiring and providing guilt
I feel so humbled to call her mine
Moulded by many, she touches the world
The world looks back and bows down in awe
Her oyster is focused and success guaranteed
My only wish is a life of happiness
For I will give mine to ensure hers is delieverd

VW L1, a car that achieves 300mpg (it's a hybrid, obviously) - yes it exists.
The Johammer J1 Electric motorbike - yes it exists.
Clearly these Pterodactyl Jets are from that brilliant Mancunian Bastiaan Koch rather than ready to roll off the line at Lockheed Martin...
