This cracked me up - the angry buzz over the mega lateness of the Marc Jacobs Fall show last week is still brewing (fashionistas can be an unforgiving lot when pushed too far...)
Check out www.marcjacobs.com which has a notice up that reads: “The Marc Jacobs spring-summer 2006 collection show will be held Sept. 12th at 9:00 p.m. Please be advised the show is running approximately 1-1/2 hours late. Please check here for monthly updates.”
Company prez Robert Duffy has the right attitude. He told WWD, “We felt bad and are sorry,” he said. “I thought, let’s lighten up a little bit. Everybody was saying, ‘Why didn’t you tell us?’ So we said, ‘Let’s let them know now that we may be late next season.’ It wasn’t being disrespectful or arrogant. We’re sorry, lighten up and let’s move on.”
It's fashion after all, not brain surgery.
