Marc Jacobs Faces Backlash After Showcasing White Models In Faux Dreadlocks


Marc Jacobs

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs is facing massive criticism for his 90s-inspired New York Fashion Week show yesterday (September 15th 2016) which took place at the Hammerstein Ballroom, after using a lot of white models wearing fake dreadlocks. Many are branding it cultural appropriation of the rasta culture.

There were platforms, metallics, animal print, high socks and sports jerseys - hugely reminiscent of the 90s. But there was one element of the whole Marc Jacobs bonanza that has seriously divided opinion; the multi-coloured faux dreadlocks.

Has Miley Cyrus Come In Like A Wrecking Ball To Marc Jacobs SS14 Collection?


Marc Jacobs Miley Cyrus

If Marc Jacobs has been deterred by all of the negative feedback he’s been receiving for using Miley Cyrus in his S/S14 campaign, the designer hasn’t let on.

Miley Cyrus has certainly been a point of controversy for the past year. The ex-Disney star has seemed more than a little desperate to prove that her Hannah Montana days are behind her and what a grown up she is these days. Apparently one of the ways to do this is to strip off (apart from a weird frontal thong contraption) and pose for Terry Richardson. Cringe. However, Richardson aside, most notably Miley caused a global stir with her provocative performance alongside Blurred Lines singer, Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs 2013. I’ll never be able to look at a foam hand in the same way again.

New York Fashion Week Ends On A High Note With Blacked Out Marc Jacobs Show


Marc Jacobs

This year Marc Jacobs closed New York Fashion Week with a grim reminder of the biggest environmental disaster, which the US has faced in the past year or so. In a somber show, held at the Lexington Armory, Jacobs mourned the damage caused by Sandy, which wrecked large parts of his beloved New York and his West Village home.

Jacobs paid sobre homage to Sandy.

The show, according to USA Today, featured one theme above all else – black, destruction, desolation. The black sand, strewn across the catwalk was reportedly shipped in directly from Katrina-ravaged coastlines – Jacobs never does things halfway. Cigarette butts and broken Budweiser bottles littered the edges of the runway, alongside a busted bus and shipwrecked mast. Whether because of the expensive sand or because the designer was trying to further emphasize the environmental message, guests were greeted by sweltering heat, which, intentionally or not, fit the theme rather perfectly.

There were clear sporty overtones as modified windbreakers and black baseball jackets made more feminine with tailoring and mesh kicked off the show. Color was then introduced in the form of the jewel tones of blue, and red, as well as the softer greys and yellows that contrasted with the models' identical black band head pieces as architecture and athletics met in stunning unision.

Marc Jacobs' New York Fashion Week Show Delayed - "We're Missing Bags, Shoes And Two Fabrics"


Marc Jacobs New York Fashion Week

Unforeseen circumstances have forced Marc Jacobs to delay his highly anticipated autumn/winter 2013 mainline show at New York Fashion Week, WWD report. 

The postponement of the show is due customs and deliveries delays. "We're missing bags, shoes and two fabrics," Marc Jacobs' International president Robert Duffy explained. "Marc and I are extremely sorry for this inconvenience. We just want to have the best show possible and show all the product that our design team has been working on so hard for the last six months," added Duffy. The change will see the show moved from its traditional Monday night slot to the 8pm slot on Valentines Day - the final day of New York Fashion Week. This leaves many critics, enthusiasts and designers with a tough decision: stay for the delayed Jacobs show or head to London for the start of fashion week there. "We completely understand if people have to get on a plane to go to London. We're not expecting people to change those plans or other plans just for us. We are live streaming the show. Still, we recognise the significant inconvenience and are very sorry about the situation."

It's set to be a hectic week for fashionistas; not only is the biggest show in the industry is landing, but 'Blizzard Nemo', too, which is predicted to attack NY with heavy snow, rain and high winds over the weekend, causing havoc for internal and outbound flights.
