Marchesa Cancels Its New York Fashion Week Show

Joining a growing list of designers, Marchesa is the latest to pull out of New York Fashion Week.

Moving away from the traditional runway show format, the fashion house will instead unveil its Fall 2018 collection through a digital presentation. The brand, which is helmed by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, confirmed its decision in a statement to the New York Post:”Marchesa is looking forward to presenting their Fall 18 collection in an updated format this season.”

The news comes after some of New York’s biggest designers, including Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Altuzarra, Public School, and more, have opted out of the traditional New York Fashion Week calendar. Most recently, Alexander Wang announced this February would be his last time showing during New York Fashion Week. Instead, the brand will present its collections in June and December moving forward.

Of course Chapman, the estranged wife of Harvey Weinstein, may have other reasons for moving her brand away from a traditional runway show format. The designer reportedly decided to cancel the Fall 2018 show, originally scheduled for Valentine’s Day, in the aftermath of the sexual harassment and assault allegations against Weinstein.

After the allegations against Weinstein became public in October, Chapman announced she was leaving her husband. The two had been married since 2007 and have two children together, aged four and seven. Weinstein has since denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” the designer said in a statement to People.
