It has been announced that Kanye’s fifth installment of his Yeezy line will be debuted later this month on February 15 during New York Fashion Week at 5PM on Pier 59 Studios. Coincidently, Kanye’s fashion show is scheduled at the same time as the Marchesa fashion show and is between the Anna Sui and Thom Browne shows. Unfortunately, the rapper has a bad rep for being fashionably late so who knows when the show will actually start.

It’s said that West has opted for a different venue from his past 2 fashion shows due to the wardrobe malfunctions and weather that his models had to endure. Hopefully the new location will allow the show to run smoothly. The venue for Season 5 is closer to other common venues for NYFW, making arrival to the show more convenient for the audience. This will be the first major appearance by Kanye West following all the drama that he and his family went through towards the end of 2016. From being hospitalized, cancelling Saint Pablo tour dates, and Kim’s robbery in Paris, the rapper had a rough past few months.

Following the snapchats by his wife Kim K of their adorable daughter North, it is suspected that the Fashion show for Yeezy Season 5 will possibly include designs of children’s apparel from the clothing line that Kanye and Kim collaborated on. Kim’s snapchats feature little North modeling in a bright yellow sequined skater dress, a yellow shearling coat with yellow fur trim, and high top black vans. The shearling coat is said to be a remake of the one from Yeezy Season 3. In her snaps, Kim credits North on picking the color and fabric of these pieces. Maybe the rest of this Yeezy collection will also feature bright, neon colors. This would be a strong contrast to Season 4 as it consisted of mainly neutral colors. Kanye is said to be working on a Calabasas themed clothing line that may also make an appearance during his Season 5 fashion show. It is highly anticipated that during the fashion show, fans will also get a glimpse of new Adidas Yeezy footwear. With the reveal of a new collection, some even suspect that Kanye will be releasing new music as well.
