Earlier this week, John Galliano took the runway in London to reveal his first collection as Margiela's Creative Director. Manolo Blahnik and Christoper Bailey were there, and Kate Moss too. They were holding their breath for the first day of the rest of Mr. Galliano's fashion life.

The show was astounding, but many overlooked the name change on the show notes. It was quietly dropping the maison's middle name "Martin" from the title.

According to NYTimes, a company spokesman said that the change was to "reflect the evolution of the house."
