Marc Jacobs is staying put at New York Fashion Week

Following the fall-out over his spring/summer '08 show (i.e. that 2-hour wait, that disagreement with Suzy Menkes, etc) Marc Jacobs hinted in the press that he was considering moving his show from New York to Paris or even London (woot!) Unfortunately for us, this is not to be.

Marc Jacobs will be staying put in New York for next season, although with a new time slot. His new show time will commence at 7pm (instead of 9pm... or 11pm rather) on Friday 8th February at the New York State Armory on Lexington Avenue.

Jacobs' business partner Robert Duffy, confirmed the shift in time slot telling WWD that he could not "guarantee that Marc won't be late".

However, he hoped that the earlier time would make it less inconvenient to audiences. "One thing I do know is that he will try to have the best show he can, and [to do that] he will want to finish every piece and make each one as beautiful as possible. If it comes late, it comes late.
This way, even if he's two hours late, people can still go to dinner at 9 or 9:30," he added.

Let's hope this new time better suits Ms Menkes...
