PICS & DEETS: Kanye Debuts His Womenswear Line At Paris Fashion Week!

Celebs, designers, and fashion editors alike hit Kanye West's much anticipated Spring/Summer 2012 runway show during Paris Fashion Week tonight.

Pics and details from his Dw by Kanye West debut inside...

Kanye made his rounds at London Fashion Week before heading to Paris to ready his own line.  It's the rapper's newest and one of his most talked about venture.  This is, though, his first womenswear line, after he designed a line of sneakers for Louis Vuitton and his now defunct line Pastelle.

He's kept the details of the line shroud in secrecy.  So everyone was on the edge of their seats tonight for the final show of the night.  Here's a preview of his runway show and Kanye taking his bow after his debut:

 

Chanel Iman walked in the show.

 

Ciara was there to support.  And looks from the runway:



Mr. West also had an unusual amount of other fashion designers on his front row: Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, Dean and Dan Caton of Dsquared, Jeremy Scott, and others.  Ciara and Tameka Raymond were also there.

While some folks gave the show and Kanye's designs rave reviews, not everyone loved it.  The Online Style Editor of the well- respected International Herald Tribune based in Paris, Jessica Michault, commented:

I think that every one of the designers sitting in the front row at Kanye West must have had a deja vue moment at some point during the show

The Kanye West show, in my humble opinion, is proof that everyone can love fashion but not everyone can be a fashion designer.

Ok ok... I will admit that I did like the shoes at the Kanye West show.

You feelin' it so far?

It's not that I'm being a hater or anything, if he wants to branch out into fashion, then more power to him. However, anything worth doing is worth doing right, so I really feel like more effort could've gone into this. It just looks like the typical "celebrity who wants to have a fashion line" kind of line, there's really nothing original or inspirational in his clothes, and no cohesiveness in the entire line in general. His outfits just seem random, like they're not all a part of a line. I don't know, that's just how I see it. He could've done better.

Because if you're serious

Because if you're serious about quickly replacing your full time income (just to start) and spending your time doing what YOU want to do, I'm ready to show you exactly how I was able to go from $600 to my name to bringing in $6,000 per month like clockwork. And what's best is it will work for you even if you're totally clueless about the Internet or technology, have no experience or education and just wanna chill out in your house and never talk to anybody. This system works because YOU don't have to! Get the details .. Just type in your name, email and phone below. Then get ready to experience something different. Something that actually works!! http://BeInspired.OneBigPowerline.com ttys GodBless!!:)

From what I see, I like it.

From what I see, I like it. I've seen alot of FASHIONS from many designers at FAshion week and they were......HORRIBLE and crap that no fashionista would rock. Kanye's line looks wearable and nice. You can see that a lot of work went into designing this stuff. The editor is entitled to her opinion but I wonder if he/she wrote the same thing for many of the designers who displayed HORRIBLE tacky fashions during fashion week. The editor seems like she is a hater period.

For all of those going back

For all of those going back and forth about whether is a real designer, sketches, creating the line, this is no different than when Kimora walked at the end of Baby Phat fashion shows. The whole world knew that there were in-house designers for the clothes and shoes and she was not one of them. This is not something to dispute. This is the way it goes when famous musicians/entertainers come out with lines. Assisting with picking fabrics does not translate into a full clothing line. People need to get their heads out of the clouds if they think otherwise.

I have to agree with the

I have to agree with the tribune writer. What drew my eyes the most were the shoes and he probably didn't design those. I give Kanye credit for trying to branch out artistically, especially since I half expected all leggings and tight baby tees ala Amber Rose. Still there was nothing I saw that I would wear except maybe the crochet vest thing under that jacket that Chanel Iman is wearing and I'd have to see all of that. He designed the clothes like a man, what a man would want to see, everything too short or too stiff, not taking into account what flatters women, what we like to wear and feel comfortable in. That white sheer 2-peice looks like somebody's clumsy idea of a beach coverup!

Ordinary every day chick

Ordinary every day chick here. I thought a lot o the looks were hot. Some I did not care much for at all. None I would be wearing. It definitely looks like a first effort and if his name wasn't Kanye this wouldn't have happened. But since he has the money and time he can keep making these efforts. And look how far he's gotten after being rejected by the fashion school. Ninjas in Paris laughing at rejection slips.

The clothes are fine. The person that will wear them need to have swagger,sex appeal to pull of these pieces. CiCi face looks good with out piles of makeup,and I would like to see what Kanye can do with CiCi far as styling her.

I like the coral dress but that's about it. Looks like something that Aqua would have made... but I think they do it a bit better. In any case, I can't knock Kanye from getting his things together & attempting. I'm sure he'll get better with more time & practice. Everyone's first time isn't always their best... always room to improve. In any case, it's cool that other designers were checking for him. How many people can say that?

Very Nice! Congrats to Kanye

Very Nice! Congrats to Kanye on pursuing one of his passions, despite the naysayers. It's almost impossible to go to a runway show and not have a "deja vu" moment, fashion repeats itself, and many designers have lines with pieces that are reminiscent of one another. This isn't new, he's being judged harshly because of who he is. FYI...this isn't a RTW line, so no, you would'nt see this on your "every day" woman. Shame on all of you for trying to restrict him to one creative avenue. “The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.”- P Strand
