Designer Marc Jacobs sent a long excuse to the fashion world on Thursday night for leaving his New York Fashion Week show.
On Instagram, Jacobs published a cheeky image of his face on the white rabbit from "Alice I Wonderland", scribbling on the character's famous quote by saying "I was late, I was late … For a very important date".
Jacobs then wrote: "I apologize to everyone and everyone who was uncomfortable by my latency on our spring / summer 2019 fashion show. For all interested, below is not a list of excuses but rather a list of facts. full of people having plans, lives, commitments, flights, families to return to, etc. And I fully respect. "
He expressed it," I have heard, read and reflected your frustration, anger and upheaval. If you choose to read below, I hope you can find your own place for understanding. "
6 pm The runway started almost one and a half hours late Wednesday, which led some fashion directors to leave the show before it started to other events, including a Rihanna underwear in Brooklyn. There were also rumors Anna Wintour left, but she had only temporarily left her seat during the delay. Jacob's shows have been known in recent years to begin very punctually after losing editors a year ago with usually hard-wearing shows.
But Jacobs explained on Thursday in his post that he had expected his latest show to begin at night before. He then ran through a timeline of what happened the next day without ever indicating the actual cause of the backlash. "After years of being beyond punctual and again, with all intent to remain, the fact is that more is always expected of us with fewer and fewer resources. It's not unique to me personally or us as a company. I have learned that I have to adapt me to our realities, he wrote.
And, "It was my wishful thinking that we could achieve all that was needed for this show with the circumstances we met. I was wrong. "
But he thought:" With our shows, I always strive to present 7-1
There were also rumors Jacobs held the show to touch rival Rihanna's schedule. However, the staff said the problems were due to a" dreamy clothing store, undoubtedly caught in rush hour, horrified by the rain. "
In some way, his fame was famous clothing as the best of fashion week at the end.
