Here’s Why Kendall Jenner Decided to Skip Fashion Week Last Season
Over the years, Kendall Jenner has proven, time and time again, that she’s a rising fashion nova. From gracing the cover of high-end fashion magazines to walking the runway for top designers, Kendall’s career has exploded. So it’s no surprise that fans were utterly confused when she didn’t appear on the runway of Fashion Week last season. Well, in a recent interview, the 22-year-old supermodel explained that her decision to do so was to focus on her mental health.
In an interview with LOVE magazine (via Teen Vogue), Kendall said, “Last season I didn’t do any shows,” she said. “Just ’cause I was working in LA and I was like, ‘Oof, I can’t right now — I’m gonna go crazy.’ I was on the verge of a mental breakdown.”
Kendall decided to skip out on Paris Fashion Week altogether, which definitely was a hard decision to make. She did, however, make her return to the runway this past June.
In the past, Kendall has always been open about mental health and the struggles she’s faced. Back in January, while being interviewed for Harper’s Bazaar, when asked if the pressure can be crushing, she said, “And you know me and how OCD I can get over the littlest things. If something isn’t going the way I planned, I freak out. Some days I just want to go live on a farm and not talk to anyone and just exist in the middle of nowhere.”
We totally understand, Kendall, and are glad you made the choice to focus on self-care over your career!
