Marc Jacobs moves to London while Alberta Ferretti moves to NY

With the Fall 2007 shows just a mere 2 months away, stories are flying around the web about the Marc by Marc Jacobs show moving to London and Alberta Ferritti showing Philosophy by Alberta Ferritti in New York.

Plans are underway for Marc Jacobs to show his junior line in London, to coincide with the opening of the first MJ flagship store in Mayfair which is due to open “shortly before London fashion week” the FWD reports.

“Jacobs’ staff are currently scouting for locations in London, though insiders stress that unless the designer and company president Robert Duffy find the exact space that corresponds to their oeuvre, they still may not undertake the move.

“Any move would be a one-off deal, and the designer would repatriate this collection back to New York calendar in September 2007.”

While Marc Jacobs is leaving New York temporarily, Alberta Ferretti is planning on taking a bite out of the Big Apple in February. She plans to show her Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti collection at New York Fashion Week.

Ferretti had been mulling over the decision for over a year which was followed by advice given to him by Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour.
