Break out your calendars: There's been another change to the New York Fashion Week schedule.
Marc Jacobs, who usually shows on the last day of New York Fashion Week at 8 p.m., is moving his show to the 6 p.m. time slot on Sept. 11., WWD reported. After consulting with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Jacobs and company president Robert Duffy decided to make the change in order to accommodate buyers and editors that will be traveling that day to get to London for its fashion week festivities.
Jacobs also plans to show at a new venue this season. Because of a scheduling conflict with the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue, which is where Jacobs typically hosts his show, the designer is moving his event to the Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue between 66th and 67th Streets.
Earlier this month, Opening Ceremony announced a major change to its New York Fashion Week show. Instead of hosting a traditional runway show, the brand's designers, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, have decided to stage a one-act play that director Spike Jonze and actor Jonah Hill will co-write.
Jonze, who has worked with Opening Ceremony in the past, will direct a cast of actors and models, who will presumably be wearing pieces from Opening Ceremony's spring 2015 collection. The play, which is scheduled to take place on Sept. 7, was reportedly Jonze's idea.
"We were really excited about him writing an original script and seeing how this would take shape," Leon told WWD of Jonze.
