Three seasons ago, Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc on New York’s fashion week schedule, with brands like Marc Jacobs and Theyskens Theory rescheduling their shows in advance of the (as it turns out, completely over-hyped) storm. This time around, we can’t even blame Nemo!
Yesterday, Marc Jacobs International president Robert Duffy announced that the designer would be postponing his show from Monday, February 11 at 8 p.m. to Thursday, February 14 at 8 p.m.
“We’re missing bags, shoes and two fabrics… Marc and I are extremely sorry for this inconvenience. We just want to have the best show possible and show all the product that our design team has been working on so hard for the last six months. We completely understand if people have to get on a plane to go to London. We’re not expecting people to change those plans or other plans just for us. We are live streaming the show. Still, we recognize the significant inconvenience and are very sorry about the situation.”
Now let’s just hope nothing gets stolen.
