Kanye West is about to upgrade his philanthropy to new heights as he is set to support the homeless with his next Yeezy fashion show.
According to a TMZ report on Thursday, January 27, Ye is planning to host homeless people as models for his new clothing collaboration with the Skid Row Fashion Week brand in an upcoming runway presentation.
The American publication claims David Sabastian, the founder of Skid Row Fashion Week, met with Kanye, 44, earlier this month and the pair decided to combine their talents to create a Yeezy X Skid Row Fashion Week venture.
David explained how he met up with Kim Kardashian’s estranged husband when he was recording Donda 2 at his studio in LA’s Arts District, not far from Skid Row.
The initiative would aim to provide jobs with the Skid Row company for homeless people in Los Angeles.
TMZ says the plan began when West met with Skid Row Fashion Week founder David Sabastian this month and agreed to work together on an upcoming clothing line.
Both the company would also support the homeless population by donating proceeds from the fashion event, according to the report.

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
