Another NYFW and another season of Kendall Jenner on the fashion week bench so to speak, opting to sit FROW instead of strutting her stuff on the runways. The celebrity model has spoken frankly about her decision to sit the fashion month out due to anxiety issues.
The American model and TV personality first revealed her struggles with debilitating anxiety and panic attacks in 2017, severe enough to wake her up in the middle of the night at times she explained. Although she has adopted coping mechanisms such as breathing exercises etc air travel and fashion weeks are still difficult for the 22 year old. Such an episode was once documented on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, with Kendall calling her mother up in the middle of a particularly difficult attack.
I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything going on that I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks.
The model was seen in a divine purple suede ensemble at the Longchamps front row early in the week. When asked about her sitting out this NYFW also the face of the French brand stated to W magazine , “It’s always a bit different…It’s always fun to be on the other side of things and get to be on the other side of the craziness. I actually enjoy it. I love being able to see the collections when they are brand new.”
This doesn’t mean that the model hasn’t done any catwalk work. She was last seen at the Versace Mens show in June, 2018.
