Well, Menkes clearly did, and wrote a scathing review of the show. On Sunday, she declined to comment on the review or Jacobs' reaction to it. However, Menkes did weigh in on the timing of the New York shows and the Jewish holiday. "I was never called by, or spoke to, the CFDA at any time to discuss show dates and the Jewish holiday. I wish they had asked my opinion, because I think the New York shows were much too early and must have put a strain on all designers relying on European fabrics." As for her Jewish faith, Menkes asked: "Am I really the only person in the fashion community who is involved in the holidays?"
