A Socialites Worst Nightmare= No Fashion Week After Parties

Marc Jacobs last Fashion Week Party....so long folks...

If you somehow manage to sneak into Marc Jacobs’ show at the Lexington Avenue Armory next month, don’t expect to be sipping bubbly at his after party. Why? Well, because there isn’t going to be one. The recession just about ransacked the fashion industry these past few months, sending some of our favorite designers home packing, laying off employees, shutting down stores, making the runway lonely and now erasing our reason to celebrate. Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein and Alexander Wang, some of the designers with the most anticipated parties, simply won’t be having them this year. But what about the hundreds of other party savvy designers? If you’re not immediate friends or family of Diane Von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, or Matthew Williamson, don’t expect to be wined and dined at their parties either. Looks like Giorgio Armani’s flagship store opening is your best bet…good luck getting in.
