Hakaan cancels Paris Fashion Week show due to missing collection

You’d think the thing a designer fears the most is getting harsh reviews from the critics for the collection they’ve been working so hard on, right? Well we  reckon not having a collection to show at all might actually top it!

That’s exactly what happened to poor Turkish-born, London-based designer Hakaan Yildirim, as his entire spring/summer 2013 collection was reportedly lost by a courier company, therefore forcing him to cancel tomorrow’s show at Paris Fashion Week. Ouch!

Apparently the designer will have to re-make every single piece from the collection again, and will show buyers and selected members of the press at a special event at a later date.

Good luck Team Hakaan, you can do it!  We wonder how many pots of coffee, sleepless nights and extra interns it’ll take to remake the whole collection in time…

Ps: Remember when the Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2012 collection was stolen last year? We’re starting to think stricter laws should be enforced for designer collections in transit; who’s with us?
