Fashion insiders and Yeezy fans alike were all eager to see how Kanye West would top last season’s Yeezy season 3 fashion show/concert extravaganza at Madison Square Garden, and West used the public’s piqued interest to his advantage by shrouding Yeezy season 4 details in secrecy.

The Location/Transportation
Early Wednesday morning, showgoers and editors from the New York Times, New York Mag, Vogue and more received emails directing them to buses in Midtown, which were scheduled to pick them up at 1:30 p.m. and shuttle them to Roosevelt Island for the 3 p.m. show.

Roosevelt Island, located in New York City’s East River, is a narrow, 2-mile long strip of land which is made up of mostly residential buildings, boasting a population of about 14,000. Though it was once the home of insane asylums and prisons in the 19th century, the island has become gentrified over the years. Earlier this year, Hillary Clinton picked the locale — named for Franklin D. Roosevelt — as the destination for a campaign rally, and it also played host to the Fall for Arts festival in 2015; however, relative to the bustle of Manhattan, the island is generally regarded as quiet.

The buses that arrived were luxury buses, but they were certainly not of the party variety. There were no snacks, water or music (not even Life of Pablo tunes) on board.

The show itself was held at the ruins of a former smallpox hospital. The building was designed in the Gothic Revival style in the early 19th century, and housed infected patients at a safe distance from the rest of the city from 1856-1875. The hospital was abandoned in the 1950s.

The Guests
In addition to editors from fashion’s most respected glossies, Yeezy’s famous pals including Desiigner, Pusha T, Vic Mensa, Spike Jonze, Joe Zee as well as the Kardashian/Jenner bunch were also en route.

The Show

Though the show was originally scheduled for 3 p.m., guests live on the ground began reporting around 3:15 p.m. that the show had been pushed back to 4 p.m. Hair and makeup teams began working around 3:20 p.m. The delays raised concern among show-goers about making it back to Manhattan for Tom Ford’s presentation at 7 p.m., as the trip to Roosevelt Island took one hour.

Fashionistas were told to meet their bus at 1:30 for the 3pm show — but West got into a fender bender on the way and the show was pushed back until 4pm, but didn’t begin until closer to 5pm.


Nearly two hours after the expected 3 p.m. start time, the show began.

Other show-goers reported that a couple models had fainted in the heat.

Model Amina Blue made a splash for removing her shoes on the runway, and then completing the final walk in white slides.


Guests griped on Twitter about the show’s late start and the excruciating bus ride from Manhattan to Roosevelt Island — which some likened to being kidnapped.
