Who would have thought the College Drop Out (still on heavy rotation at REB HQ) would be debuting a womenswear collection at Paris Fashion Week!! He had fashion's elite lining his front row from Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld to the Olsen Twins.
Kanye had the help of British designers Louise Goldin, Katie Early and Giuseppe Zannotti. Stand out looks from the show included; super low neck lines, leather, cut out dresses, embellishment details, fur backpacks and clean palettes with a lot of layering, on the likes of Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman, giving off a somewhat sport/street luxe vibe. We say not bad Kanye! The show has received mixed reviews, but we put it to our readers, have you ever heard of a rapper turned womenswear designer with a show at PFW...... So we applaud Kanye's attempt and look forward to next season!
Sidenote: Loved that the models were stomping to the sounds of the Fugees! Disappointed that 'N***** in Paris' was not on the soundtrack though.. would have been a classic #awkwardmomentwhen
