Taylor Swift was M.I.A. Thursday.

When Kanye West debuted his Adidas collaboration as part of New York Fashion Week, the people nearest and dearest to him showed their support by sitting in the front row, including Hailey Baldwin, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Big Sean, Diddy, Jay Z, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Rihanna, Russell Simmons, Alexander Wang, Pete Wentz, North West and Anna Wintour. Swift "was supposed" to be at the show, Kanye revealed to Vogue's contributing editor André Leon Talley. "I don't know what happened."

With a smile on his face, Kanye added, "I'd like to see everyone wearing everything."

Taylor has yet to address her absence at Kanye's runway show via her social media accounts. However, a source tells E! News, "Taylor wanted to attend but had a scheduled photo shoot that day that she could not move."

The photo shoot was scheduled months ago, the source adds.

For his collection, Kanye wanted to make sure the clothes weren't "about the logo." The rapper also credited Adidas for "supporting me as a creative to get across the real vision."

André also asked Kanye about his post-Grammys rant during the E! After Party.

"I feel good. I feel like a human being. I feel like a man. A man can make mistakes. A man can have an opinion. A man can be hypocritical," the "Only One" rapper explained. "But, you know, I feel like I have blood in my veins, that my blood hasn't been turned cold by the concept of celebrity or missed opportunities or perception."

Prior to arguing that Beyoncé deserved to win Album of the Year instead of Beck, Kanye had a warm exchange with Taylor at the Grammys. The two hadn't seen each other since Kanye rushed the stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards to announce that "Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time." Now that they've buried the hatchet, Kanye and Taylor plan to make music together. "She wants to get in the studio and we're definitely going to go in," the hip-hop star explained to Ryan Seacrest during a KIIS-FM radio interview Wednesday.

"Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I'm down to get in the studio and work," Kanye continued. "I don't discriminate. I don't have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or, you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you're Beyoncé, whether you're Taylor Swift, whether you're Jay Z, whether you're Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I'd like to be involved with that."
