This isn't the first time the Los Angeles-based designer has made headlines for her fashion week decisions. This season, Rebecca Minkoff has decided to forego fashion week altogether.
Last year, she chose to show her collection in Los Angeles instead of New York's iconic fashion week. She showed at The Grove causing a ripple effect for designers to decide to move their shows to the West Coast. This year, as reported by WWD, Minkoff will be skipping the NYFW presentation because she is expecting her third child. She will also be participating in a women's empowerment project, based off the Women's March.
Based off of the brand's Instagram, Minkoff helped to participate in the march this past weekend and even supported the protest with their own signs. The social media page has been reposting several women in Hollywood with a "Grl Pwr" sweatshirt and has been supporting the overall Women's March movement. Due to this and the pregnancy, it seems that the designer and her iconic handbags won't make an appearance in New York this season.
