Victoria Beckham won't be showing her Victoria, Victoria Beckham contemporary line at New York Fashion Week. The collection was scheduled to hit the catwalk on Monday morning but won't be ready for a couple of weeks as the team are still working on the creative around it.
VB's Autumn Winter mainline show took place on Sunday. Models hit the runway in a cool mix of of low slung pleated skirts over trousers and long line sweaters and tunics layered over midi skirts then finished with flats.

'There’s a lot more design detail this season and also we're really focusing on evening,' Victoria explained to Grazia. 'I like the mix of androgyny and femininity. What I really love is the long feminine skirts with the more masculine trouser underneath. I think that looks really, really cool.'

Following in VB's footsteps L’Wren Scott has decided not to show at London Fashion Week on Sunday, multiple sources are reporting.
WWD has revealed that due to production delays in key and couture pieces, the designer - famous for her slim-fitting dresses - will instead unveil the collection on social media, letting buyers and editors get a glimpse of the pieces in her Paris showroom in early March. Such plans have not yet been confirmed by the designer herself.

It's no surprise time's tight for L’Wren, she recently worked on a huge line for Banana Republic as well as collaborating with Bobbi Brown.
The designer made her first LFW appearance in 2013. She spent the years before holding appointments in her Paris showroom or inviting small groups of press and buyers for intimate lunches in New York.
“I liked the idea of not being tied to one place, one time, one format,” L’Wren told WWD. “My brand is now expanding in Europe and showing in London this season feels right. We always move to our own rhythm.”
She presented her SS14 collection at the minimal Gagosian Gallery in Central London last September. Featuring optic white dresses cut to just below the knee and jewel-encrusted evening gowns, she said it was inspired by 'late Sixteenth Century Japan in the Momoyama period'.

Speaking to Grazia last December, L'Wren was coy about her plans to stay showing in the city. 'I love showing in London, and I have had nothing but positive experiences here of the capital. London is the epi center of fashion,' she said.
They're not the first designers to cancel a show this season, Rachel Zoe ditched her Fall 2014 New York show because she didn't want to leave her newborn son to travel to the city from LA.
'As a new mother, my newborn son is too young to travel with me and I’m unable to leave him for the amount of time required to appropriately prepare for the show in New York,' Rachel said in a statement to WWD.
'While I look forward to New York Fashion Week each season, I’ve made the difficult decision to move our fall 2014 runway show from Feb. 13 in New York to a later date in Los Angeles.’
