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?
