Fashion Spot forum members couldn’t contain their disappointment when navyvelvetbowtie shared a tweet from Ford Models stating the following: “NYFW update: Sigrid Agren will not be doing NY shows due to a scheduling conflict that runs the duration of Fashion Week.”
Sigrid had a stellar showing for the Spring 2011 collections, walking more runways than any other model and booking 65 shows according to the calculations of our forum members. “Hope of a 70-show season just slipped away in front of my eyes,” jiaqi cried.
“What the hell!” oliveu88 exclaimed. “What could possibly be the scheduling conflict????”
Though they were surprised by the news, forum members were careful not to get too caught up in thoughts of gloom and doom. They quickly looked on the bright side. “I’m pretty sure that Sigrid will come with a great surprise for us,” IceePriincess speculated. Whatever she’s doing instead of NYFW is surely a big deal job that will be worth her while.
LiranYana consoled herself with the thought that “as long as she will be in Milan and Paris, all is not lost.”
Navyvelvetbowtie agreed: “She will be amazing as always in Milan and Paris,” he wrote. We’re sure to see her there (and we'll be counting every appearance) in the midst of all the glorious fashion madness.
