Everything You Need to Know About Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 Show
In typical Kanye West fashion, the rapper chose a time slot for Yeezy Season 5 without consulting the CFDA. But after realizing there was a conflict with Assembly and Marchesa, Kanye opted for convenience. The show of his collaboration with Adidas will take place at Pier 59 Studios today, Feb. 15 at 3 p.m.
"Kanye called me personally to let me know that he had no intention of showing on top of another designer, and was unaware that there was a conflict. He explained that once he realized Marchesa was in the time slot, he immediately looked at alternative options," CFDA Chief Executive Officer Steven Kolb told WWD.
While the Yeezy show is not on the CFDA's official schedule, we're pretty sure it will be all anyone can talk about, especially if Halima Aden is one of the models. You may remember her as the pageant contestant who wore a burkini during the swimsuit portion of Miss Minnesota USA. If there's one thing Kanye does best, it's his diverse casting of models. Read on to see what you can expect from the show.
