VFILES presented the seventh installment of its crowd-sourced runway show Wednesday night. In addition to showcasing collections by four emerging designers, the event featured a performance by Playboy Carti. But the real star of the show might just have been Young Thug.
This season the rapper was enlisted as mentor by VFILES, which means he worked with the designers, stylists, and makeup artists before their debut at New York Fashion Week. It became clear during the show that he took his responsibilities very seriously. Young Thug, who was sitting in the front row, got out of his chair to fix a model’s outfit mid-runway.
The model, who definitely didn’t see Thugger coming, stood there as he readjusted his jacket and sent him on his way. Young Thug then returned to his seat and continued taking pictures like a proud dad on his iPad.
"Young Thug brings an incredible vision to the table," VFILES founder Julie Anne Quay previously told Complex. "His approach to our collaboration was very thoughtful and respectful of the work we reviewed together." Obviously, he wasn’t willing to sacrifice that vision, even it if meant stopping the show.
Even though NYFW just started, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a spectator come to the aid of a model. During Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 show, an audience member helped a hobbling model make her way down the runway.
