North West Sparks No Kids Rule At NY Fashion Week

Thanks to North West, no kids are allowed at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Last week at Kanye West’s adidas show as well as Alexander Wang’s show, North had a temper tantrum while sitting in the front row. As she fussed, cried and screamed other attendees like Beyonce, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Nicki Minaj and P. Diddy looked noticeably uncomfortable with the one-year-old’s behavior.

The disruption has led to organizers banning children from all New York Fashion Week events. Photographer Kevin Tachman told US Weekly that he started North’s crying spell at Saturday’s (Feb. 14) Alexander Wang show. He has a Monkey Shutter Hugger Toy that is on top of his camera and when North saw it and couldn’t get it she had a fit.

“I brought the monkey to have fun with the models as I primarily shoot backstage and it’s always a good way to make the girls smile, ” he said. “Then I realized as word came that they were coming to sit front row that she may become fixated with it. I took the front row pics and all was fine but ended up shooting the show right across from them. So of course she wanted the toy.”

The newlyweds were also reportedly scolded by Wintour for bringing the child to the Fashion week shows.
