Fashion Week Update: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Postpone The Row’s Spring/Summer Presentation

The second New York Fashion Week Presentation of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s upscale collection, The Row, has reportedly been cancelled.

It is unclear whether the line will still be presented through appointments, but restraints dealing with delivery are reportedly to blame for the delay.

The Olsen sisters have released the following statement: “We have made the decision to postpone our spring-summer 2011 presentation of The Row due to sample delivery. Production and delivery of our samples is delayed by a few days and this has cast us out of the New York schedule. We will therefore present it to the market within the Paris schedule. We are excited and are looking forward to presenting our collection.” {Fashionista}

We aren’t sure if the recession has more to do with the cancellation, but there’s speculation that the label has been struggling with sales and made big budget cuts through layoffs early last year.

The high-end collection is known for its outrageous prices (think $500 for a T-shirt) and a good part of the line ended up on the sale racks at Barney’s sample sale. {Fashionologie }Perhaps the market still isn’t back to what it used to be for higher priced clothing. Whatever the reason, it is a disappointment that there will be no New York show, but we are still looking forward to their return in Paris and will try to stop by the showroom to get a closer look at the collection.
