Nemo's Sitting Front Row at NYFW -- Whether They Like it or Not

The East Coast blizzard has already forced Marc Jacobs to postpone his show, and even more events are set to suffer.

Blizzard-Nemo

The East Coast is bracing for blizzard Nemo. But even before the first snowflake fell, the storm started wreaking havoc on Hollywood's schedule.

With over 3,700 flights being canceled in anticipation of what could be a historic whiteout, several industry events could feel the consequences of thwarted travel plans.

Out on the West Coast, Los Angeles is set to host the Grammy Awards (Sunday), the American Society of Cinematographers Awards (Sunday) and the Sci-Tech Oscars (Saturday), all of which could see ripple effects from grounded flights.

And in New York City, where snow began to fall Friday morning, Nemo is already altering the lineup for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which kicked off on Wednesday.

Designer Marc Jacobs has decided to rescheduled his collection show from Monday, Feb. 11, to Thursday, Feb. 14, due to customs and delivery delays, according to WWD.

Though the collection show will still take place at the Lexington Armory, the show could not move forward as they are "missing bags, shoes and two fabrics, " Marc Jacobs International president Robert Duffy said.

While other have yet to follow suit, Jacobs likely won't the only label burdened by Nemo-related hindrances. For designers who do decide to postpone — whether it be for stalled shipments or canceled flights — they may follow Jacobs' lead in shifting to next Thursday, which seems to be the lightest day on this year's Fashion Week schedule.

Meanwhile, other designers are simply missing out on their moment in the NYFW spotlight due. Fashion maven Jenni Kayne is marooned in California due to flight cancellations and will miss her collection's presentation, slated for Friday at 11 AM, entirely.
