TURKISH DESIGNER HAKAAN Yildirim was forced to cancel his Paris Fashion Week show today after his whole collection was lost in transit, representatives of his label said.

The designer’s PR company Karlaotto sent out emails yesterday to everyone who was invited to view his spring-summer 2013 collection saying that the preview was cancelled.

“The whole collection is lost,” said Karen Nitsche of Karlaotto. “It was when they were being transported. We don’t know how.”

No other details of the clothes’ mysterious disappearance have been given but Vogue reports that the fashion house is currently working to re-make the show pieces which will be displayed to fashion press at a later date.

Last year Marc Jacobs’s had to cancel his spring-summer 2012 show in London after the collection was stolen en route.
