Kendall Jenner, who has walked over 89 runways in her seven-year fashion career, didn't walk any shows this New York Fashion Week - though she was in the city and did attend an Off-White x Jimmy Choo dinner and Adidas Originals presentation. But a new teaser from Keeping Up With the Kardashians explains why Jenner may have avoided the runway: she suffers from panic attacks - and her anxiety is at its worst during fashion week.
In the clip from the episode, Jenner is on the phone with her mother Kris Jenner, having a panic attack in Los Angeles. Kris Jenner explained: "Kendall struggles from anxiety, and I think she has so much going on that she gets herself really worked up. Kendall gets the most anxious during fashion week so when she's travelling a lot. And Milan's coming up and trying to juggle it all is overwhelming."
In flashback footage in the clip, Jenner discussed her travel worries while on the phone with family: "It's weird because I get super light headed when I'm on planes to and I feel like I'm going to faint. Everyone says I'm fine, but I don't feel fine."
Jenner has previously touched on her anxiety in an interview with Cara Delevingne for Harper's Bazaar in January. When asked what keeps her up at night, Jenner said, "I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything going on that I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks. Where do I even start? Everything is so horrible, it's hard to name one thing. I just think that the world needs so much love."
The last time Jenner took to the catwalk was the DSquared2's Milan menswear show in January 2018.
