The world knows him as a hip hop star and as Kim Kardashian’s husband, but now Kanye finally made his dream come true and debuted his very own fashion line in collaboration with Adidas Originals. His daughter North and wife Kim Kardashian didn’t only show their support by attending the show, but Kim also sported the clothing her husband designed.

It was definitely not your typical fashion show could be one way to describe the event referred to as “Yeezy: Season 1”. Kanye made sure to make the best out of his debut as a fashion designer as he used the opportunity to promote his new single from his new album “Wolves”.  Not just that, but the rapper really stretched out the definition of being fashionably late as his fashion show started an hour after the assigned time. And if you think that was bad, try to picture North screaming mid show, not something you see on a regular fashion show.

As for the collection itself, it sported a neutral palette of colors, nudes, greys and muted green were most frequently seen in the form of camo jackets, backpacks, crop tops, leggingsand oversized sweatshirts. Unfortunately most of the models looked like they forgot to wear pants that day and while Kanye wanted to do something revolutionary, he received mixed critics. One thing he was praised for, however, was the diversity of the models as they were of different shapes and sizes. Kylie Jenner, Kim’s younger sister was also spotted in Kanye’s army of models.
