On Sunday, November 10th, this last weekend, Drake made an unexpected appearance at Tyler, the Creator’ was Camp Flog Gnaw Festival, where he wasn’t met with a warm welcome. The headliner was kept a secret up until the performance but people speculated that it was going to be Frank Ocean based on his close relationship to Tyler. The audience booed and whistled at Drake until he cut his performance off 30 minutes early.

The grace with which Drake handled the situation was remarkable and in a recent post on Instagram he responded to what happened humorously, saying "Plot twist...just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30". He also said to a friend that it was "a moment of humility".

Tyler, on the other hand, was severely disappointed by his fans and took to Twitter the next day to express this. First, he changed his Bio:

Then he outright addressed the situation and called his fans out.

BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW. SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE ASSHOLES WHEN IT DIDNT COME TRUE AND I DONT FUCK WITH THAT</p>&mdash; Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) <a href="https://twitter.com/tylerthecreator/status/1193946903278280704?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">11.

Fact is, that by being so disrespectful towards Drake, the audience was also being disrespectful towards Tyler, who made the deliberate choice of having Drake as a headliner. And not only is it disrespectful towards Tyler's music taste, but it also makes all of what Tyler stands for look bad.

<center><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="de"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">THIS NIGGA DID FEEL NO WAYS! SONG IS BEAUTIFUL. ALSO, MOSTLY EVERYONE WAS HAVING A GREAT TIME, THOSE SHITS IN THE FRONT AREA WERE THE ONES BEING MAD RUDE, WHICH, I CAN SEE WHY, BUT, NAH, FUCK THAT, YALL REPRESENTED ME AND FLOG TO MY GUEST AND MADE US LOOK SOOO ENTITLED AND TRASH</p>&mdash; Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) <a href="https://twitter.com/tylerthecreator/status/1193947886876147712?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">11.

The thing is, even if you're not necessarily a fan of someone, this is just not how you treat people. It is rude, arrogant, spoiled, and completely out of line.

<center><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="de"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">THAT SHIT WAS LIKE MOB MENTALITY AND CANCEL CULTURE IN REAL LIFE AND I THINK THAT SHIT IS FUCKING TRASH</p>&mdash; Tyler, The Creator (@tylerthecreator) <a href="https://twitter.com/tylerthecreator/status/1193948101423161346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">11.

I'm glad Drake took it lightly but this type of behaviour should never be condoned and it can be harmful too. So practice empathy. And even if you don't love the artist performing you should have respect for their work and their art. The audience got what they deserved when they stood there looking like a bunch of clowns waiting for Frank Ocean in vain. I hope they learned their lesson and maybe even managed to acquire some human decency.

The employees in the boutiques, in the design studio and in the backstage area at fashion shows wear white lab coats, as was common in the ateliers of the great couturiers, e.g. Christian Dior, and is still common today. The fashion shows for the high-priced fashion sometimes took place in the context of the Paris Prêt-à-porter shows in unconventional locations, up to shabby surroundings (construction site, metro station, dining room of the Salvation Army etc.). The boutiques are kept in plain white and gray. Margiela originally selected unspectacular locations such as a residential area in Tokyo and did not publish the addresses of the boutiques in order to require the customer to make an effort to find the store at all. The first Margiela store opened in Tokyo in 2000 and the first European boutique was inaugurated in Brussels in 2002. In 2008, a boutique opened in a basement on the edge of Munich's Maximilianstrasse. This was followed by participation in numerous exhibitions, including "Radical Fashion", which was shown in 2001 at the V&A Museum in London. In 2010 there were 36 own stores worldwide.  In 2015 there were over 50 stores worldwide, including boutiques, that only carry the MM6 collection.

The company followed a very restrictive communication policy. The designer can neither be photographed nor interviewed. Only his creations should speak for themselves and the designs should be perceived as the overall performance of the team. That's why the team always shows up in white doctor's coats after the fashion shows - nobody should stand out.

By recycling old fashion, separating, recoloring, reversing seams and zippers, both the origin and the artificial of the art of tailoring are shown. Margiela puts together what doesn't belong together: by hand, jeans turn into skirts, old army socks become pullovers. Baptized by the press as deconstructivism, this current is defined by an abrupt collision of different materials, which at first glance appear inharmonic in the sense of conventional viewing habits. Margiela herself rejects the term "deconstructivism". He resurrected clothes in a new form, he told ELLE in 1991.

Margiela was the unofficial 7th member of "Antwerp 6", a generation of fashion designers who all completed their training at the Royal Academy of Arts between 1980-1981 and shaped the "style of the Belgians". However, it does not belong to the actual group, but it became known in a similar period.

The Japanese "Street Magazine" dedicated two special editions to "Maison Martin Margiela", which were published in book form in 1999. Nicolas Ghesquière (Balenciaga) is a big fan of Maison Martin Margiela.

In July 2014, fashion critic Suzy Menkes exposed Matthieu Blazy via Instagram as Head of Design, after which he deleted his Instagram account and changed his profile in a career network. He left the company on October 1, 2014.

To this day, Margiela pieces, especially in the fashion industry and all fashion lovers, belong to the sanctuaries in every repertoire and archive. Getting vintage pieces from other designers may be possible, but Maison Martin Marginal Archives are a real hunt and that says it all about this art.
