Marc Jacobs has postponed his New York Fashion Week show while he waits for missing items to be delivered due to the storm hitting the east coast. Instead of showing on Monday, February 11 as scheduled, the collection will now be unveiled on Thursday, February 14 at 8 pm.
Jacobs’ more affordable line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, will take the Monday slot, but will move from the New York State Armory to the The Tents at Lincoln Center. Unfortunately, with the Marc Jacobs mainline show now taking place in the new late Thursday evening time slot (the last day on the New York schedule), many editors will have already left the city for London Fashion Week, which starts the next day.
“We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience or expense this may cause you or your team,” Jacobs and business partner Robert Duffy said in a statement to show attendees Thursday.
Threats of a blizzard from the incoming Storm Nemo has resulted in the cancellation of several flights into the city, meaning that many international editors and buyers have had to miss the first round of shows.
