Marc Jacobs show postponed

Late arrivals mean upheaval in NYC

The fashion week drama has begun: delays at customs mean that Marc Jacobs is having to delay his mainline show at New York Fashion Week by a whole three days.

The designer’s 8pm Monday show will now be held at 8pm on Thursday, thanks to hold-ups with delivieries and customs meaning that the collection is currently short of bags, shoes and fabrics.

This has a knock-on effect on the Marc by Marc Jacobs show, which will now fill the vacant 8pm Monday slot. It’s currently without a venue, as the set for the mainline show is already under construction at Jacobs’ traditional space of New York Armory at 68 Lexington Avenue.


‘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,' Jacobs’s business partner, Robert Duffy, told WWD.

‘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.’

Marc isn’t the only designer with the New York blues right now. Winter storm Nemo is threatening to put a freeze on the fashion week fun, with eight to 12 inches of snow expected to accumulate on the city’s sidewalks today alone.
