Georgina Chapman’s Marchesa is ending its Fashion Week runway show

Georgina Chapman was hoping to make her comeback this season and was set to show her fashion brand Marchesa at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 14, but on Tuesday, The Post learned that the show was ultimately ended. An insider said that it will most likely be a digital presentation instead.

“Georgina couldn’t go through with it,” a NYFW veteran said. “She was too scared.”

The show was scheduled for Valentine’s Day and was set to be produced by Navia Vision, a Brooklyn-based production company.

“They were gung-ho . . . but as they got closer, she choked,” the fashion week vet said.

The NYFW vet also stated that Chapman’s brother, Edward, who is the CEO of Marchesa, “doesn’t really have the chops to navigate a boat that’s in that type of water.”

“Marchesa is looking forward to presenting their Fall ’18 collection in an updated format this season,” a spokesperson from Marchesa told The Post.

It didn’t come as a huge surprise that the 41-year-old designer wasn’t ready for the spotlight again. Chapman has barely been spotted since the wave of sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein. More than 100 women have accused Chapman’s former husband. Chapman has also announced back in October that she and her two sons will be leaving Weinstein.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” she told People Magazine. “I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”

Men will wear all black to Golden Globes

There has been news that several prominent male performers, such as Dwayne The Rock Johnson, will be joining the women-led protest against sexual misconduct that has been showing up recently in news, especially in Hollywood. The men plan to show support by wearing all black to the 2018 Golden Globe Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Jan. 7.

Entertainment Weekly reported, celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati wrote on Instagram that all of her clients would be wearing the all black attire this year:

“Because everyone keeps asking me… YES, the men WILL be standing in solidarity with women on this wearing-all-black movement to protest against gender inequality at this year’s Golden Globes. At least ALL MY GUYS will be. Safe to say this may not be the right time to choose to be the odd man out here… just sayin…”

Urbinati is the stylist for prominent male stars such as Tom Hiddleston, Garret Hedlund, Armie Hammer and many others– even The Rock. Stylist Michael Fisher, who dresses Hugh Jackman and Sam Rockwell, told Hollywood Reporter that men wearing black is “going to be an inevitable thing out of solidarity. I think the majority of men are going go safe in a black suit with a white shirt so no one’s going to look the odd man out.”

While most actors, critics and fans are embracing the stand on both sides, the movement has had its criticism.  Rose McGowan put out a hostile tweet towards Streep and other actors on Dec. 17 which has now been deleted.

“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” she wrote. “YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy.” She added, “Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”

Marchesa is the brand run and designed by Georgina Chapman, former spouse of producer Harvey Weinstein.

McGowan deleted her tweet and later sent out another twitter message.

“The Marchesa line was beneath me and I’m sorry for that,” she later wrote. “There is no map for this road I’m on, I will fuck up. Peace be with you, go with Goddess.”
