Kanye West kicks off the first day of Fashion Week with his collaboration collection with Adidas. The show took place in an industrial space in Manhattan on the Hudson River. Music stars like Beyonce and Jay Z, Cassie and Diddy, Rihanna, and Russell Simmons sat in attendance while West’s wife Kim Kardashian calmed down baby North West. Fashion elite like Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and fashion designer Alexander Wang were also in the building.
The show began with a taped monologue by West in which he said: “I want people to feel like it’s OK to create and follow their dreams are and not feel boxed in – I want people to feel that awesome is possible. There’s a lack of creativity in every field because people are afraid. As an artist in this room, we can do whatever we want.”
