Alexander McQueen to Skip the Runway for Fall

Sarah Burton is expecting twins and will be on maternity leave in her hometown of London during Paris Fashion Week.

THE MCQUEEN MUM: Sarah Burton and Kate Middleton have more in common than fashion this season. Burton is also expecting — twins — and will be on maternity leave in her hometown of London during Paris Fashion Week. But the show must go on — kind of. Instead of a theatrical runway show, the house will host a small presentation to show Burton’s fall collection to about 100 editors on March 5 at 4:30 p.m. with buyer appointments in the evening. A public relations representative for McQueen noted that it will reclaim its usual time slot — Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. — for spring 2014.
