Kanye West debuted his highly anticipated Womenswear Ready -to -Wear collection earlier today in Paris to mixed reviews (hey he’s a rapper so the criticism is definitely going to be tough). Recognizable Models such as Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Karlie Kloss hit the runway in the new ‘Dw’ collection, named after Kanye’s mother Donde West who passed in 2007. Kanye enlisted the help of British deisnger Louise Goldin and Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci to assist him in bringing his vision to life.
The front row was star studded with the likes of Ciara, The Olsen Twins, Lindsey Lohan, Anna Wintour and Jared Leto as well as designers Sylvia Fendi, Alexander Wang, Jeremy Scott, Joseph Altuzarra, and Dean and Dan Caton of Dsquared. Kanye West reportedly used the sounds of Waka Flocka Flame as the models walked down the runway in a mixture of fur and leather as well as hooded and bondage style dresses with some critics pointing out the influence of Givenchy and Balmain on the collection. After the show, Kanye told reporters:
I’m so scared, I’m so nervous.
The biggest conversation I hope I can end tonight is the whole ‘celebrity designer’ thing/ That’s the biggest hurdle when you want to get amazing people to work for you.”
Ciara reacted to the collection backstage by saying:
