Marc Jacobs has decided to postpone his show for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
The designer had to change his original date from Monday Feb. 11 to Thursday Feb 14 due to Winter Storm Nemo. The company's International President Robert Duffy stated, "We're missing bags, shoes and two fabrics."
Jacobs and Duffy also released a letter via Twitter addressed to fans with the Marc Jacobs family stating: "We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience and expense that this may cause you and your team. We very much hope you will be able to make it to the show at the new time but if you cannot we completely understand."
The letter also appealed to fashion editors who will travel to London from New York for London Fashion Week starting Feb. 15. They stated: "We don't want to cause any issues for those who are scheduled to attend the London shows and we know that this schedule change makes for a difficult transition."
However Jacobs' more affordable line "Marc by Marc Jacobs" will take the Monday slot. The show will be moved from the New York State Armory to The Tents at Lincoln Center.
The news comes after 3,000 flights were cancelled throughout the northeast due to the winter blizzard. Other designers have also become nervous about whether or not their models will arrive to the show due the cancellations.
Parkchoonmoo producer Maureen Cahill is worried about their show tonight at 9 p.m.. She stated, "We are worried about transportation in general and delays throughout the day." Cahill added, "We are trying to compensate with car services to get models in on time."
Jacobs is currently the only designer of Fashion Week to postpone his show but as the storm hits, and weather conditions worsen, there are more designers and shows likely to be canceled or postponed.
Fashion Week runs through Feb. 14.
