Rachel Zoe has cancelled her New York Fashion Week show.

The stylist and designer has announced she will be absent from the schedule for the first time since she started showing in the US fashion capital in February 2011.

The star became a mother to Kaius in December and already has Skyler, two, with her husband Roger Berman, and admits raising her sons is her priority at this moment in time.

According to WWD, she said: ''While I look forward to New York Fashion Week each season, I've made the difficult decision to move our fall 2014 runway show from February 13 in New York to a later date in Los Angeles.

''As a new mother, my newborn son is too young to travel with me and I'm unable to leave him for the amount of time required to appropriately prepare for the show in New York.''

Rachel, who was expected to show at The Salon at the Lincoln Center, confirmed she would be returning to NYFW as usual in September with a 60s-inspired bohemian Fall 2014 collection.

However, her market week will still go ahead as planned on February 10 in New York City.
