No matter what Kanye West does, it’s always tainted with controversy and today was no different as he debuted his Yeezy Season 4 collection in elaborate style to kick off New York Fashion Week.
But this show was less sensational and more shambolic with models toppling over in the baking heat, fainting on the sidelines and, to top it all off, the clothes were rubbished by fashion critics.
The hip hop icon, who has now successfully turned his hand at fashion, dreamed up a unique way to showcase his collection to an audience on Roosevelt Island on Wednesday, where he invited top editors, bloggers and social media stars to feast their eyes upon his latest creations.
But the unique display was hampered by reports that models were fainting and in desperate need of water as they were forced to stand in the baking heat without shade.

So he may have basically hired out an island for the extravagant show and chartered buses to transport guests to see the latest collection for Adidas.
But logistics to keep people hydrated and safe in the heat appeared questionable.

Other guests, who were specifically invited by the rapper, moaned that they were not given any snacks or water on the buses.
Once at the destination guests have claimed that they were then forced to wait in line in the hot heat but they were able to get their hands on some Yeezy merchandise which was on the pricey side. No freebies.

But the footwear didn’t go down well for everyone, with one model reportedly having to take her shoes off in order to walk down the runway. While another allegedly fainted and had to be carried away for medical assistance.
