Blame the Economy! Marc Jacobs To Cut NY Fashion Show Invites by 1300

The economic downturn is sucking all the fun out of Marc Jacobs!

It forced him to cancel his 2008 holiday party and now it's impacting how he'll be doing things at the upcoming NY Fashion Week.

For starters, there will be no MJ Fashion Week after-party, which has always been one of the fashion set's most anticipated events.

And, he'll also scale backhis fashion show guest list.

Only 700 people will get invites this year. In years past the guest list total would get up to 2000!

Marc's bearer of bad news, his business partner, Robert Duffy, told the media:

"This isn't the time to spend the money to entertain the entire world…. Everybody thinks it costs the same money to entertain 500 people as opposed to 2,000 [when you've got the space]. It doesn't. All those 2,000 people still need to be seated, they still need to check in, this one needs this, that one needs that, and you know what? It's very costly."

He also said that he and Marc would rather scale things back at Fashion Week than do lay offs.

We applaud that reason!

Thank your bosses, team Marc!

    It's wiser to cut the "party list" back than start laying people off from their jobs. A lot of the attendees were probably just going to be "seen" and weren't interested in the fashions. The guest list of 700 is still impressive.

    yup, very wise and thoughtful! i hope they can stay this way for long..!

    Jeez pervez,does this mean you aren't invited? Seems as if a smaller venue could be announced as "more exclusive" than adding to the negativity of your daily gloom and doom reports.



  31. 31

    Dearest darlings, some of your comments verge on the offensive, though I will turn a blind eye just this once!….It seems a crying shame that the current economic crisis effects every sector so badly. Art and Fashion are your greatest escape through times of woe!….Here's hoping that the smaller fashion houses can keep afloat!
    Much Love Ms Coco LaVerne x

  33. 33

    he's scaling back for financial reasons, don't credit him for lying shamelessly

    and, is that a giant sore on his neck?



  34. 34

    Sorry Kanye. Ha ha, I kid, I kid.

    Re: MsCocoLaverne

    i agree, the person who said "get a real job"?! this is a real job! a job that employs hundreds of thousands of people, if you can't feel bad for the "rich people who don't get to party" feel bad about the fact that a lot of designers can't even afford to show this year at all, for the young designers(like myself) who have recently been laid off, and for the fact that without fashion (the most noticeable form of artistic expression) this world becomes a bland and boring place! not to mention the huge effect it has on the WORLD ECONOMY let alone the American one!! failing designers and failing shopping malls and failing brands means less money being circulated through the whole economy, this little party is just a by product of that, and shit's going to get worse before it gets better!

    Re: M*I*A*R – You don't know much about love, do you? Sad but true. You say he's 'fucking awesome' in one comment then slam him for 'the homosexuality' in another comment.

    Frankly, I've never understood the allure of his clothing. His designs look ugly, old and matronly.
