Isaac Mizrahi isn't the only designer deciding against showing his S/S12 collection in a runway show this season. This week Max Azria have announced that they will not have a runway show this season but have remained quiet about the reason behind the change, leading may to believe that it's a result of their ongoing financial difficulties. But it's not all bad. Hervé Léger and BCBG Max Azria will both show their collections at normal.
But Max Azria is not alone. Vena Cava confirmed that she will show a small 'preview' of her collection rather than a full-on show with only friend and family being invited. Any press and buyers wanting to have a look at their spring offerings will have to wait to receive the look book which will be sent after the preview. Last season the collection receieved scathing reviews and didn't do to well at retail so this is probably the reason for the change.
