Peter Som Cancels New York Fashion Week Show

New York Fashion Week is mere weeks away, but this season we'll be missing some of our favorite designers. Hot on the heels of news that Chris Benz won't be showing in February comes word that Peter Som is skipping the runway, too. But this doesn't mean Som is totally down for the count.

New York Fashion Week is mere weeks away, but this season we'll be missing some of our favorite designers. Hot on the heels of news that Chris Benz won't be showing in February comes word that Peter Som is skipping the runway, too.

We received an email from Wella, who has sponsored the hair at Som's show in seasons past, which said, "We have received word from Peter Som’s team and he will not be showing this season at NYFW."

But this doesn't mean Som is totally down for the count. His reps tell us he is likely showing his collection this season, just in a different format.

It seemed like his business was gaining momentum--Michelle Obama has worn his designs and he quit his Tommy Hilfiger consulting gig to focus on his own business.

We'll keep you posted when we know more about how Som intends to show this season.
