It's been seven months since Harvey Weinstein was first accused of sexual misconduct in Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times and New Yorker exposés—and since then, dozens of women have accused the disgraced film producer of assault, harassment—and, in some cases, rape; Weinstein, through his legal team, has vehemently denied all claims of sexual misconduct.
Five days after the first report was published, Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman, Weinstein's wife of nearly 10 years, announced she had left him. Chapman, a judge on Project Runway All-Stars, finalized their divorce months later, receiving a settlement of $15-20 million.
Chapman's business partner, Keren Craig, spoke on her behalf in a Grazia interview, while Weinstein's ex canceled the runway show for the label's Fall 2018 collection and stayed hidden.
Now, Chapman is ready to share her story. "I was so humiliated and so broken...that...I, I, I...didn't think it was respectful to go out," she says in the June issue of Vogue. "I thought, 'Who am I to be parading around with all of this going on?' It's still so very, very raw. I was walking up the stairs the other day and I stopped; it was like all the air had been punched out of my lungs."
