La disculpa de Marc Jacobs por el pequeño inconveniente en su desfile

El tiempo entre pasarelas. Podríamos escribir una serie con todo lo que pasa entre un desfile y otro durante la espera previa al inicio de un show. Es común que la cita sea media hora antes al comienzo real para realizar el sitting sin prisa.

Sin embargo, durante la presentación de la última colección de Marc Jacobs, el retraso se extendió por más de una hora. Entre los desesperados asistentes se encontraban Nicki Minaj y Anna Wintour, quien por un momento se creyó que había abandonado el desfile, pero se encontraba en la parte trasera haciendo llamadas.

El desfile finalmente sucedió y sobre el catwalk caminó una extravagancia de vestidos en color pastel que justificaron la espera pues por esos diseños, valió la pena.

El diseñador se disculpó por la demora como mejor sabe hacerlo ante cualquier situación bochornosa en su vida (y ha pasado muchas), con humor. Marc Jacobs publicó una imagen del conejo de Alicia en el país de las maravillas en donde insertó su cara y la leyenda “I was late, I was late for a very important date”.

I sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone who was inconvenienced by my lateness at our Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show. For anyone interested, below is not a list of excuses but rather a list of facts. I fully understand people have plans, lives, commitments, flights, families to return to, etc and that I fully RESPECT. I’ve heard, read and reflected on your frustration, anger and outrage. If you choose to read the below, I hope that you can find your own place of understanding. 1. The night before the show at midnight, I believed that we would absolutely be starting at 6pm, as planned and it was my intention to do so. 2. At 3:30pm on the day of the show, I became aware that we would most likely be an hour late. In good faith and hope it was communicated that the show would start at 630pm and that was a mistake. 3. After years of being beyond punctual and once again, with every intention of remaining so, the fact is, more is always expected from us with fewer and fewer resources. That is not unique to me personally or us as a company. I have learned that I need to adjust to our realities. 4. It was my wishful thinking that we could accomplish all that needed to be done for this show with the circumstances we faced. I was wrong. Not because everyone didn’t make every effort or give it their all and more, life is just that way sometimes. I’ve always been told that, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” With our shows, I always strive to present 7-10 minutes of live fashion theatre that hopefully makes some kind of statement or touch the audience in some way both aesthetically and emotionally. I think we all have to be a little more sensitive and flexible to the fragile state of the live experience. I hope anyone reading this will reflect on my thoughts as I have on yours. 
Sincerely and respectfully, Marc
