About 30 minutes ago the first official Kanye West Fashion Show ended, being part of the official Paris Fashion Week schedule. Lots of rumors were circling around for months about the existence of the line, who West was working with for the collection and how it will actually look like.
The first surprise to many was the news, that it would be a women’s collection. As such, we will also leave a judgement of the looks to the pros. All we can say at this point, is that the amount of ‘important’ people from the fashion and entertainment industries that showed up to see the fashion show was rather impressive. From Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld, Terry Richardson, Lindsay Lohan, the Olsen twins, Jessica Michault, Dsquared 2 designers Dean and Dan and the list just goes on. All major fashion magazine editors (Vogue, The Love Magazine, Vogue Homme, etc) were also attending the show. Among the models you could find Chanel Iman and all shoes of the show were designed and produced by Guiseppe Zanotti, which is another impressive move by Kanye. We all know that the high fashion crowd will be a hard one to please, especially from an outsider.
We will not even try to judge Kanye’s attempt at fashion design and will leave you with these images to make up your own mind. We do respect though, that he gave it a shot and cannot wait to see what the next step in Kanye’s fashion career will be.
