    Georgina Chapman will no longer be showing her fashion brand Marchesa’s latest collection at New York Fashion Week. The cancellation comes at last minute as her show was scheduled for 14th February, was cancelled last minute, and there are rumours the designer wasn’t ready.

    According to the New York Post, an insider told them, ‘Georgina couldn’t go through with it, she was too scared. They were gung-ho . . . but as they got closer, she choked.’

    It’s expected the new collection will be instead be shown in a digital format, with a spokesperson saying, ‘Marchesa is looking forward to presenting their Fall ’18 collection in an updated format this season.’
