From falling models to new sneakers from Kanye West, the internet had plenty of material to tweet, Instagram, and Periscope during New York Fashion Week 2015.

Twitter emojis or it didn’t happen

According to Fashion Week Online, New York Fashion Week has an estimated economic impact of a cool $900 million. Thus, #NYFW earned some Twitter emojis this year. Whenever Twitter users added the hashtag #NYFW during the week, one of the seven featured emojis would appear in their tweet. Adorable.

Yeezy Season 2 is out of this world

Kanye West debuted his highly anticipated Yeezy Season 2 ready-to-wear collection (and brand new song) with a star-studded front row including Anna Wintour, Drake, and Seth Meyers. Speaking of stars, many internet users compared Ye’s pieces to the wardrobes of various Star Wars characters. All criticisms aside, Mr. West did an excellent job creating hype online by broadcasting live streams of the collection in select theaters worldwide.
