The Northeastern blizzard is going too far when it starts to mess with New York Fashion Week.

The snowstorm that has taken over the Big Apple is now causing havoc for designers who are preparing to show their new collections for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, including Marc Jacobs, who has now announced that he's decided to postpone his show from Monday, Feb. 11 to Thursday, Feb. 14, due to customs and delivery delays.

"We're missing bags, shoes and two fabrics, " Marc Jacobs International president Robert Duffy told Women's Wear Daily.

Jacobs and Duffy released a letter addressed to "fans and Marc Jacobs family" to explain the situation, and added, "We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience and expense that this may cause you and your team. We very much hope you will be able to make it to the show at the new time but if you cannot we completely understand."

On top of that, the National Weather Service's blizzard warning has designers worried about whether or not models will arrive on time for their show.

"We are worried about transportation in general and delays throughout the day," Maureen Cahill, the producer for the Parkchoonmoo show scheduled for Friday at 9 p.m., told DNAinfo.com. "We are trying to compensate with car services to get models in on time."

Jacobs is currently the only designer to postpone his show at this time, but it's not unlikely that others may follow suit.

After all, he is a trendsetter.
