Kanye West PFW 2012

Kanyes’ Paris Fashion Week show was hit with plenty of negative press as he unveiled his collection. Kanye West has been quite a controversial addition to the fashion world, with critics claiming his clothes line lacked imagination. He hit back at critics by taking to twitter to defend his lack of fashion knowledge by outlining recent work experience that qualified him to be showcasing his collections with elite fashion royalty. I’m sure that reassures the Central Saint Martin’s students no end after their years of hard work.

“I moved to Rome after I left Japan and worked at Fendi for 4 months under cover … I was there to give ideas for the men’s collection,” he tweeted, adding, “I snuck to Guiseppe Zanotti factory while still under [my Louis Vuitton] contract and learned to design woman’s shoes for 2 years before my first show in Paris.”

“[I was] also offered a position at Versace which I could not take due to my contract with LV which was for 2 years,” he tweeted.

“Everything I knew about my woman’s clothing was what my Mom would wear. I guess some critics would joke that I still don’t know anything LOL,”
