If Kanye West drops a new fashion line but doesn’t bother to show up to the launch, did it ever really happen?
Yesterday (Wednesday) was supposed to be the debut of the Yeezy Season 5 runway collection at New York Fashion Week. There was only one problem — no Yeezy. For past collections, the designer has chosen to stand on stage with the models, but this time around, he was nowhere to be seen.
Witnesses reported a more low-key show than past years, with models standing under a spotlight in functional outfits.
Even though Kanye wasn’t seen, Kim Kardashian was in the front row — so he couldn’t have been far.
Maybe he’s trying to take the focus off his celebrity and put it on his designs.
It’s probably not easy for him to be in public while he’s still recovering.
