Kanye West Cancels Yeezy Season 6 Premiere at New York Fashion Week — Report
Sorry, Yeezy fans! It looks like you won’t be seeing a new collection any time soon.
Kanye West has reportedly cancelled his Yeezy Season 6 premiere at New York Fashion Week.
The cancellation occurred less than a week before his scheduled presentation on September 13.
Business of Fashion reported the news after they claimed a representative of Redken — who were due to work on the show — sent an email confirming the cancelled presentation on Wednesday.
The 40-year-old rapper has yet to comment on the speculation.
However, sources close to the star reportedly told Us Weekly that a presentation at New York Fashion Week was never scheduled in the first place, and the debut of his new collection will happen at a later, as yet unconfirmed, date.
The apparent cancellation may come as a shock to fans of the rapper's clothing line, though, as he's used the famous fashion showcase to debut his new collections for the past five seasons.
Whilst the cause of Kanye's decision not to appear at NYFW is unclear, it comes less than a year after the “Famous” rapper pulled out of his Saint Pablo tour due to "exhaustion," which at the time was attributed to "working around the clock" on his fashion label.
"He's just exhausted,” a source said in November 2016. “He's been working around the clock on fashion designs, both his own line and the Adidas line.
“He's a notorious workaholic ... so balancing both that work — which is extremely important to him — and the rigours of the tour every night, it really wore him out.”
"All the time spent away from his family has been a stress on him, as well,” the source continued. “They are the most important to him.
“Obviously he's a professional and wants to give his fans a great experience and I think his gut was telling him to extend the tour throughout the end of the year, but he decided to push through. He doesn't want to give his fans anything less than the best."
If Kanye decided to take another break right now, it’d be totally understandable, especially with another baby on the way.
Neither Kanye nor Kim have confirmed the news yet, but the baby, a girl, is reportedly due in January.
Even though Kanye won’t be at NYFW this year, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is already there.
The 36-year-old was spotted rocking silver hair at the Tom Ford show last night, her first outing since the surrogacy was first reported.
