Thinking of Kanye West you think of; "Gold digger", them "bling" diamond teeth he has, the ridiculous amounts of money he has (that I wish I still had now) and them endless designers names all in his blackberry... but fashion designer? I was quite surprised hearing of Kanye West doing a fashion show.. especially a women's show, I couldn't get out my head that he was going to design something either very figure hugging that showed off a women's best assets or something that caused a lot of controversy or even with such a dynamic print to reflect his own personal style. And that he certainly did.
Reading up on his first Paris fashion show it seems as though he really didn't make the best first impression that he wanted, being told his collection was to "Givenchy-esque, ten points off for copying the guy next to you" quoted from Wall Street Journal fashion critic Christina Binkley from the New York Daily News. He also caused a big stir by using exotic animal skins and furs, including crocodile, fox and a young lamb, I understand its his first show but putting fur into his first show is asking for trouble as the amount of controversy surrounding fur is huge. Although obviously for your first show you want to stand out from the crowd and show your pushing the boundaries and he obviously pushed them boundaries out of the water, I'm not a fan of seeing fur on the catwalk. Yes it looks nice but is it really worth the controversy and knowing your wearing some dead creature on your shoulder and having its scary beady eyes staring at you?!
