When preparing for a fashion show, anything that will happen will. But the worst imaginable thing is to have your collection stolen just days before the show.
Julia Clancey, London fashion designer is in Los Angeles to showcase her 2010 summer collection at a charity benefit this weekend. This afternoon the designer announced that she is canceling the Sunday show because her collection was stolen from her apartment.
On Tuesday Federal Express delivered boxes consisting of 40 garments worth $300,000, to the designer’s Marina del Rey apartment. Thereafter, the boxes mysteriously disappeared.
LA County Sheriff’s department is investigating the stolen garments. Clancey is offering a $5,000 reward for the return of her collection.
Julia Clancey is a favorite among celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Keira Knightly and Victoria Beckham and designs have been featured in Vogue, InStyle and ELLE magazines.
