As buttoned up and polished as New York Fashion Week looks from the outside, the real deal is a little less pristine — it’s sometimes sweaty, sometimes panicky, and definitely dramatic. But even the week’s usual antics pale in comparison to what fashion fans are speculating right now.
Wednesday night marked the final day of NYFW, and it was supposed to end with a bang as both Marc Jacobs and Rihanna presented. Traditionally, Jacobs has been the grand finale of fashion week, closing out the whole shebang with a show at 6 p.m. on the dot. 2018 is a little different though, because this time around, Rihanna chose to schedule her own Savage x Fenty lingerie showing at 7:30 p.m, making her the closer.
Now, Jacobs hasn’t explicitly said anything about it, but his show included some unusual funny business. The designer — who is famously one of the few who starts his show on time, like clockwork — began an hour and 26 minutes late.
