Kanye West shamed at New York Fashion Week when models fainted

Oh Kanye, will there ever be a headline that doesn't make you look like an awful human being? Well it certainly won't be today, as the hip hop star turned 'fashion designer' has came under scrutiny after his models fainted due to extreme heat at his Yeezy New York Fashion Week show.

Taking place at an abandoned smallpox hospital on Roosevelt Island, Kanye unveiled his Season 4 Yeezy collection outside in baking 30 degree heat, which ran an hour and a half late, leaving models needing constant hydration whilst wearing longer length hoodies and knitwear.

Fashion bloggers and editors took to Twitter to criticise the rapper:

 

That wasn't the only mishap on the day either, as one of the models heels snapped and had to walk barefoot on the runway. So next time you're having a bad day, take a look at this and remember it could be worse...
