Paris Fashion Week won’t be the same this season. Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen and soon-to-be mother of twins, has decided to cancel the label’s Fall 2013 runway show due to doctor’s orders. Best known for designing Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, the designer mom will be joining the Duchess with her buddles of joy arriving this summer.

McQueen’s fall collection will show in March to select guests during a series of private presentations for press and buyers. But not to worry, Burton will be back for Spring 2014 Paris Fashion Week where we’ll see more of her romantic high drama confections on the runway.
