On Tuesday Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman announced she was divorcing her
husband Harvey Weinstein after several investigations were published regarding
his decades-long sexual harassment. But Chapman’s fashion line, which has long
been aided by Weinstein’s Hollywood connections throughout their marriage, is
already suffering as a result of the allegations.

On October 5 the jeweler Helzberg Diamonds announced a collection of “Marchesa
Radiant Star” engagement rings, the same day that the first New York Times story
on Harvey Weinstein dropped. The Hollywood Reporter reports that as of October
11 links to the collection no longer work and a representative for Helzberg
confirmed to the publication that the Marchesa line will not be launching at
this time.

Marchesa also announced on Wednesday that the brand’s Spring Summer Press
Preview, scheduled for October 12 according to the Huffpost, has been postponed
to a later date.

I suspect she knew all along what he was doing and is only dropping him
now to try and save her line. But it may be a bit too late.
