“We have been prepping for a year for this at considerable financial, labor- and commitment-cost to our company. Our show date has been scheduled for months and has been on the Fashion Calendar for weeks. We went through all the proper channels to make this a reality. And just yesterday we learned that Kanye West is having a show at the same time on the same date as ours.” Designer Anne Bowen tells WWD of her profound disappoint regarding West’s decision to hold an unannounced show at Fashion Week to debut his streetwear collection. Bowen had to change her show date, costing money and major PR resources.
