Kanye West 's Yeezy goes down in shambles?

Kanye West's  show was less sensational and more shambolic - with models toppling over in the baking heat, fainting on the sidelines - and, to top it all off, the clothes were rubbished by fashion critics.

The hip hop icon who is celebrating Yeezy season 4 fashion show has reamed up a unique way to showcase his collection to an audience on Roosevelt Island on Wednesday, where he invited top editors, bloggers and social media stars to feast their eyes upon his latest creations.

But the unique display was hampered by reports that models were fainting and in desperate need of water as they were forced to stand in the baking heat without shade.

It has been reported that Kanye's show, which was held in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park kicked off over an hour and a half later than the original 3pm time – keeping everyone waiting in the 86 degree heat.

So he may have basically hired out an island for the extravagant show and chartered buses to transport guests to see the latest collection for Adidas.
But logistics to keep people hydrated and safe in the heat appeared questionable.

To see the models in neutral coloured bodysuits and garments, continuing his signature theme, a New York Times Style reporter compared it to a “middle school field trip”.

While another editor from joked: “The #YeezyBus is really glamorous, guys! Especially when the bathroom door swings open and nearly slaps us”.

Other guests, who were specifically invited by the rapper, moaned that they were not given any snacks or water on the buses.

.Models including Chanel Iman, Sophia Richie and Teyana Taylor all hit the runway for the major event, which saw them rock turtleneck dresses, trousers, jumpers and hoodies as well as boots like the clear heels that Kim Kardashian was rocking earlier this week.

But the footwear didn't go down well for everyone, with one model reportedly having to take her shoes off in order to walk down the runway. While another allegedly fainted and had to be carried away for medical assistance.

Newsday journalist Anne Bratskeir shared a clip on Instagram and wrote: "This is so sad the model cannot walk in these ill-conceived boots."

Stella Bugbee, who is an editor for New York Magazine's The Cut, tweeted that she felt she needed to leave the show because of the models. She called out Adidas and said it should be “ashamed” because of the struggling models, some of which almost fell she claimed.

“Most awful thing I have ever seen at #NYFW. Getting the f*** out of this. #YeezySeason4 what a nightmare,” she tweeted.
