KANYE WEST / ADIDAS

In February of 2016, Required Reading was brought in by Kanye West to help him pull off one of the largest fashion shows ever - and the first to take place in Madison Square Garden.  With three weeks until the historical album listening party and Yeezy Season 3 fashion show was to go live to 20 million people around the world (and 1000 theaters), Seanne, David, and Adam partnered with Kanye's team to create a living painting, creative directed by Kanye's collaborator Vanessa Beecroft.  Working closely with Vanessa, the trio started with a single image of a Rwandan Refugee Camp, and weeks later fans around the world saw the spectacle themselves: 1000 extras, 10,000 pounds of individually sourced, dyed, and distressed vintage clothing, a meticulously recreated set, all to the soundtrack of Kanye's new album "The Life of Pablo."
