New clothes, Yeezy Runners, peroxide blonde hair - it was wild.

Kanye West debuted his Yeezy Season 5 collection at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and the hotly-antipicipated show didn't disappoint.

The show took place at NYC's Pier 59 Studios, and in true Kanye style, the unorthodox rapper flipped the generic fashion show formula on its head.

'Ye presented his new collection via huge live video projections before his models did a final lap of the runway.

Interestingly, West didn't premiere any of his new music during the show. He instead chose to play 'Bed' by J. Holiday, sung by The-Dream, on repeat. 

Rumours also circulated in the show's run-up that a long-awaited Kanye x Drake collaboration would surface, reportedly due to a promotional photo attached to one of the invites. 

No such collaboration debuted, although some of Yeezy's new clothing had "Calabasas" and "Lost Hills" printed on - fuelling rumours of a future collaboration between the pair.

Famous attendees included Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Teyana Taylor, and A$AP Ferg, as well as Ye's creative team.

The rapper was praised for his use of culturally diverse models, including stunning hijab-wearing model Halima Aden. 

His regular muse, Amina Blue, also modelled during the show.

'Ye debuted his new trainer, the Yeezy Runner, as he entered the venue.

The rapper donned an all-white pair, whilst different colour variations featured on his models throughout the event.

The show appeared to go swimmingly in contrast to Kanye's Yeezy Season 4 show, for which he received backlash due to delays, difficulties and an alleged lack of care for his models.

The rapper reportedly fired his entire Yeezy staff following a "nervous breakdown" after the show - a rumour which 'Ye later dispelled.
