New York City. What can I say? It's a magical place, especially at this time of year! Fashion Week! It's a blaze with comings and goings of models, bloggers, photographers, assistants, celebrities, workers. I love it! I love it all! Though I'll be missing out this fall, I'll be watching from the bleachers that is situated in Melbourne (my couch) to watch and keep up with what the greats of New York & American fashion have to show.
One of these is none other than Kanye West. Yeezy Season shows have been one of my favourite to watch. It's unique insight into fashion and the eccentricity of the actual runway itself gets me excited every single damn time! From Madison Square Garden to Roosevelt Island, it's always an amazing experience for those wanting an insight into Mr West's twisted mind. A genius if you ask me.
Yet this year is a little different. He'll be showing in a slot between Anna Sui and Thom Browne (at the same time as Marchesa) on Wednesday the 15th of February at 5pm. Set at Pier 59 Studios at Chelsea Piers, the venue is (obviously) a studio format that can be arranged into a presentation runway show - but it's Kanye we're talking about so creativity is in his nature. A blank open slate is just what he needs!
If Kanye's new Instagram style is any indication, we're looking at retro styles of suburban 90s motifs. It's going to be interesting to say the least! Vogue Runway will be hosting live coverage on the day so head on over if you want to see it!
