After Kanye West and Adidas announced the debut of Yeezy Season 5 at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday, Council of Fashion Designers of America boss Steven Kolb expressed outrage in a statement to Women's Wear Daily, saying Kanye hadn't gone through the "proper channels" to notify the CFDA about the show.
The Yeezy Season 5 show, originally scheduled to take place on February 15 at 5 p.m. at Pier 59, was not featured on the NYFW schedule as of Wednesday. The show has now been added to the official schedule with a 3 p.m. start time.
"Kanye called me personally to let me know that he had no intention of showing on top of another designer, and was unaware that there was a conflict," Kolb told Hypebeast in a follow-up statement. "He explained that once he realized Marchesa was in the time slot, he immediately looked at alternative options."
