HOME-BOUND: Marchesa will be absent from New York Fashion Week this September. That’s because designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig will show their spring collection at London Fashion Week instead.
There is a reason for the onetime move — the English designers are marking their 10th year in business. “We had been speaking with the British Fashion Council,” said Chapman. “We felt it was a good way to celebrate our anniversary.” Added Craig: “It’s a one-off celebration in London, and then we are back [in New York] in February.”
The date and venue of the show are still being determined. “It will be a different experience,” noted Chapman. “All our English friends and family can get an opportunity to celebrate with us.”
