Kanye West Debuts Womenswear Collection at Paris Fashion Week

Kanye West

Kanye West is used to being a front row fixture at fashion shows, but on Saturday, he was backstage. The rapper-turned-designer payed homage to his mother, the late Donda West, with the debut of “Dw by Kanye West,” his first womenswear collection during Paris Fashion Week.

The star-studded audience included designers such as Riccardo Tisci, Alexander Wang, and Jeremy Scott, and celebrities Lindsay Lohan, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and Ciara, who tweeted, “KANYE is A GENIUS- TONIGHT was MONUMENTAL.”

Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard in da Paint” and Common’s “The Light” played as models strutted down the runway wearing Kanye’s creations. Mr. West walked out to take a bow at the end, wearing a simple white T-shirt, black jeans, and Nike sneakers.

Feast your eyes on Kanye’s spring/summer 2012 collection.

    very modern, very kanye. the fur, i find, was an act of design defiance & a crystal clear translation of kanye’s “i do what i want” attitude. loved this entire collection from design concepts to model casting. superb first collection & a stunning design debut.

    @jeremydante, I agree with you 100%. I knew you would keep it real and give an honest fair assessment of the collection. So many people are being so hateful on twitter. I think it was a stellar debut.

    Ok, it’s not bad. I thought It’ll be over the top, but it’s just ok. Nothing too extra for starters. The shoes are the BUSINESS in this collection. I think menswear is more so his alley, and I think he’ll have better success. Regardless, it’s very impressive. S/O to his team

    @Fanny, the shoes are actually not designed by kanye, but by giuseppe zanotti.

    @S, not that you don’t have a point, but fashion has never been about convenience. Besides, the fur looks dope. I just hope it’s faux fur.

    It’s not bad for his first collection. But this was the wrong place to present this. He should have presented this at New York Fashion Week. The critics are going to slay him for the fitting. It’s a bit off. It certainly didn’t live up to it’s hype.

    I’m no fashion expert but this all looks great.
    Bold, colorful, creative.

    And it mostly looks pretty wearable too.

    i don’t want yeezy to get into the fashion industry simply because i want wayyyyyyy more music from him!
    but objectively, he’s a genius at fashion too.

    I loved the majority of the collection. If seems to fit in to the fashion that is out here today. I am happy for Yeezy. Do your thing boy! He will eventually get a mens’ line. But women are the ones that spend the money. Take that! Take that!

    Well, I can see why it would be considered confusing. Fur in S/S ’12 collection, mmm… Some of the pieces are OK. Nothing that eye-catching, but he’s learning. There are designers who study for years and have not showed at Paris, Milan or London and they have considerably more experience. I think 2 collections on from this and his stuff will be great.
