I know +John Elliott + Co had to be feeling some kind of way to have +Kanye West show up at the fashion show. Just one day after taking NYC by storm with his adidas fashion show and various concert appearances, Kanye West popped up at the John Elliott + Co. NYFW show on Thursday.
West was spotted in all-black, was seated in second row taking in the Fall/Winter 2015 collection at Skylight Clarkson SQ, seen speaking with GQ Creative Director Jim Moore at one point. Once backstage, Kanye was all smiles hanging out with designer John Elliott, named one of GQ’s “Best New Menswear Designers of America.”
The two posed for photos and conducted an interview with Entertainment Tonight, which is set to air on Friday evening. Along with West, the NFL’s Victor Cruz and the NBA’s J.R. Smith and Nick Young were also in attendance. Rapidly creating a cult following since its creation two years ago, John Elliott’s menswear line has been seen worn by such celebrities like LeBron James and Scott Disick.
