We've heard what the critics have had to say about Kanye West’s New York Fashion Week collection, and we’ve heard what Kanye has had to say about Kanye’s collection––but what about Kanye’s models?

Devan Mayfield is answering our question, and has revealed to Business Insider what it was like to take part in Kanye’s historical fashion week show. Devan says that she was cast for the show at the last minute, saying, “It felt like a dream to be working with fellow artists, creators, and revolutionaries. I was very inspired and carry the energy from those moments with me today.”

Devan also said that Kanye oversaw every last detail––the rapper-turned-designer was present at her casting and all of the fittings. Devan told Business Insider, “When I arrived for hair and makeup on the day of the show, he was already there. Kanye was very involved.”

As for the clothes, Devan says that she loved them despite what any fashion critics had to say. Many criticized Kanye’s collection for being too boring, including Kelly Cutrone––owner of People’s Revolution, one of the biggest fashion PR firms in the industry––and Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week. Devan disagrees, however, and says that she felt ‘empowered’ in Kanye’s clothing.
