Marchesa will not have a formal show for spring. But it hasn’t yet pulled the plug on some kind of spring presentation altogether. That’s the apparent takeaway from the vague statement released by “a spokesman” on Tuesday night: “Marchesa is looking forward to presenting their fall 2018 collection in an updated format this season.”
The one-liner took the Internet by storm, raising more questions than it answered. Its deliberately cryptic tone did not do Georgina Chapman, Keren Craig and their chief executive officer Edward Chapman any favors. How the company would approach this runway season has been an obvious question since the Harvey Weinstein news broke in October. That news must have been personally devastating to Chapman — unimaginably so. But it also packed serious, inevitable repercussions for the company she owns with Craig. The upcoming collections season has been staring the partners down for three months — a harsh, unrelenting deadline.

But when you’re playing for the Warriors, there’s a good chance you’ll make it to the championships. And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek
