Putting on a chaotic and ambitious fashion show like this week’s Yeezy Season 4 and making sure everything runs smoothly is an enormously difficult and stressful job. More difficult when you’re an adventurous creative like Kanye West who envisions a world of high-end Spanx and oversized sweaters.
Last week, the self-proclaimed “post-internet Disney” suffered a heavy backlash for his chaotic, messy Yeezy Season 4 fashion show. The outdoor star-studded event held at an abandoned hospital on New York’s Roosevelt Island was nearly two hours late, causing some of the “multiracial” models to collapse from heat exhaustion. Also collapsing were Kanye’s shoes. The designer’s stilettos appeared poorly manufactured as models stumbled along the concrete runway. One model, Amina Blue, even took her shoes off mid-walking to save herself from any potential injuries. Well, Kanye has heard the jeers and criticism.
