Winnie Harlow posts a heartfelt message about her New York Fashion Week journey and personally thanks Kanye West for believing in her

Winnie Harlow has walked the runways of some of the most iconic fashion designers, but in a recent social media post, she made it clear to her fans that this wasn’t always the case by shouting out Kanye West. In a heartfelt message posted to her Instagram account, Winnie Harlow detailed her New York Fashion Week journey and personally thanked Kanye West for believing in her.

Winnie Harlow wrote next message about her modeling path:

“You know what’s crazy about this moment? My first fashion week, I had no money, no agency, but I spent my last week and flew to New York in hopes of getting into the first Kanye Yeezy show. Okay, I didn’t understand. Actually, I didn’t have a show that year. I flew home and cried in bed. But I never gave up knowing I wanted younger me to be proud; the younger me who had never seen anyone like me. This year, Kanye West came right up to me to dress me up in Yeezy. Wow. Blessed. Full circle.”

You’ll remember that Vinnie, who originally started her career on the reality show America’s Next Top Model, has modeled for both Kanye West’s Yeezy brand and ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s Skims.

All three were on hand at this year’s New York Fashion Week, as Winnie Harlow was photographed by the paparazzi sitting front row at the fashion store with Kim and walking with Kanye as he promoted his viral (though not yet released) shadows. Yeezy.
