Although Georgina Chapman was slated to show the latest Marchesa collection on Valentine’s Day, Harvey Weinstein’s soon-to-be-ex-wife will be a no-show at New York Fashion Week. Yesterday, the New York Post reported that the runway show for the brand helmed by Chapman and Keren Craig has been canceled. A spokesperson for the brand told People, “Marchesa is looking forward to presenting their fall ‘18 collection in an updated format this season.”

The feminine label has been embroiled in scandal since the Weinstein story broke in October. Actresses Jessica Chastain and Felicity Huffman have both said that Weinstein bullied them into wearing Marchesa, and Jezebel reported that Miramax’s female stars frequently wore the brand’s gowns to award shows.

Earlier this month, Marchesa released a look book of its pre-fall 2018 collection, proving that it would continue post-Weinstein. In October, Chapman announced that she was leaving her husband, telling People, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions.”

Weinstein and Chapman have reportedly reached a settlement in their divorce. Per their prenuptial agreement, released by TMZ in December, she will receive $11.75 million.
