Kim Kardashian isn't usually one to miss out on Fashion Week, but since she is still in hiding, boyfriend Kanye West was spotted front row at the shows by himself instead.

The superstar rapper is known to have a strong interest in fashion and has even collaborated with designers such as Giuseppe Zanotti and French clothing brand A.P.C. in the past to create his own pieces.

So it's no surprise to see him attending New York Fashion Week, even though girlfriend Kim opted to stay at home with their 2-month-old daughter North.

Yesterday (8 September), Kanye was pictured at the Hood By Air 2014 Spring/Summer show with longtime friend, stylist and creative collaborator Virgil Abloh.

The 36-year-old 'Yeezus' star was sat on the front row and dressed casually in a pair of light denim jeans, a grey long sleeved jumper and Timberland boots.

He was also seen on the front row of the Alexander Wang show on Saturday (7 September), where he joined singer Miguel and Beyoncé's sister, Solange Knowles, to enjoy the designer's latest creations.

Kim on the other hand is still intent on staying out of the spotlight after giving birth to the couple's first child in June, even if it means missing out on the hottest runway shows the Big Apple has to offer.

Although she has been caught outside of her home on a couple of occasions (and even sporting a brand new blonde hair 'do), the 32-year-old reality star has been careful to keep an ultra low-profile over recent months, with many people assuming that she is waiting for the right moment to unveil her post-pregnancy figure in true Kardashian comeback style.

While her beau fed his passion for fashion in NYC yesterday, Kim caught up with her friends and sister Kourtney Kardashian over a glass of wine instead. Or is that grape juice?
