DW by Kanye West!!

I previously reported about the talented artist, Kanye West,  allegedly working on a women's wear line in Paris. All of the talk was very true!

Kanye West debuted his highly anticipated women's line, DW by Kanye West (in memory of his late mother Dr. Donda West) for Spring 2012 at Paris' Fashion Week on October 1, 2011.

Familiar faces were in the building sitting front row showing their support including Ciara, Jared Leto, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Anna Wintour, Sky Ferreira and Lindsay Lohan.  Fellow designers were there, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and Sylvia Fendi.  Top models Chanel Iman, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Abbey Lee Kershaw all strutted down the runway in style. 

Kanye West had some things to say:
“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.”
"Thank you for anybody that didn't believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries," he said. "We don't know what the reviews will be, we don't know what they will say, but I got a chance to go to Italy and feel those fabrics. I begged Louis Vuitton to let me do more shoes after my shoes sold out in two weeks, and they did not. I begged Nike, I begged this company to let me do it. And I took out motherf--king loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had."

If you've been keeping up with my blog, you know my love for celebrities turning into designers is very thin.  Kanye West is a true artist in all aspects, just allowing himself to be free with his talents.  The last statement above puts the icing on the cake for me.  He really went hard for this line and I respect that, just like Gwen Stefani and Jessica Simpson.
