MARC’S MOVES: Next month’s New York Fashion Week will end a little earlier and at a different venue. Marc Jacobs, who has been closing the week at 8 p.m., is moving his show to the 6 p.m. time slot on Sept. 11, the final day of fashion week. Jacobs and company president Robert Duffy, who consulted the Council of Fashion Designers of America, were motivated to shift the time to accommodate editors and buyers who plan to attend London Fashion Week and leave for the airport from the show.
It’s not the only change this season. Due to a scheduling conflict with Jacobs’ usual venue, the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue, the designer is moving the show to the Seventh Regiment Armory at Park Avenue between 66th and 67th Streets.
