Marc Jacobs apologises for his very late-running show

The usually punctual designer’s SS19 show started an hour and a half late

LFW might be here already, but all the drama from NYFW seems to be continuing. After starting his SS19 show 90 minutes late, Marc Jacobs has taken to Instagram to apologise. 

“I sincerely apologise to anyone and everyone who was inconvenienced by my lateness at our Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show,” the post read, going on to explain a list of facts (not excuses) as to why.

He explains that as always, he planned to start his show on time, but realised in the afternoon it would be an hour late – something that was communicated (accidentally) as half an hour by the team working on the day. Legend has it that after his SS08 show – which ran two hours late – Anna Wintour walked out, and Jacobs has made sure to start his shows promptly ever since.

On Twitter, some speculated that the designer let the show run late on purpose, as a jab at Rihanna. While Jacobs usually closes NYFW, it was announced before the shows started that RiRi’s Savage x Fenty would be the new finale. 

Regardless of the reason, with all of the fabulous frou frou that sashayed down the runway, we forgive you Marc.
