Anyone who has waited to see the inevitable debauchery of Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion show this year was probably disappointed. Just moments before show time, it was announced that that there would be no live stream of the event.
To add insult to monochromatic injury, not only was there no live stream, but attendees were informed there were also no photos or videos permitted during the show. Press was even apparently removed from the venue before the show started.
Still, content creators will be content creators, and there was plenty of imagery on social media and around the internet for us to see. Herewith, the imagery and videos Kanye West does not want you to see from Yeezy Season 5.
