The postponement of the show is due customs and deliveries delays. "We're missing bags, shoes and two fabrics," Marc Jacobs' International president Robert Duffy explained. "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," added Duffy. The change will see the show moved from its traditional Monday night slot to the 8pm slot on Valentines Day - the final day of New York Fashion Week. This leaves many critics, enthusiasts and designers with a tough decision: stay for the delayed Jacobs show or head to London for the start of fashion week there. "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 recognise the significant inconvenience and are very sorry about the situation."
It's set to be a hectic week for fashionistas; not only is the biggest show in the industry is landing, but 'Blizzard Nemo', too, which is predicted to attack NY with heavy snow, rain and high winds over the weekend, causing havoc for internal and outbound flights.
