I wasn’t really going to report on this story.. Personally I love that Kanye is so versatile and creative. I love his swag and that he always challenges himself no matter how caked up he may be.. I don’t even mind his arrogance.
As far as his clothing like goes.. Some stuff was nice, so stop was over the top. Just like any other fashion runway show you may see.. I don’t see why so much negative fuss about Yeezy’s line. Yes the necklines plunged a bit too deep and people hated the shoes especially the beaded shoes, but I thought the beaded knit shoes were dope.
Anyway, Kanye had a few words after his fashion show after party.
“I’m feeling good.[…]Thank you for anybody that didn’t believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries. 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—ing loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had.
“This is my first collection. Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity s—. I don’t f— with celebrities. I f— with the creatives in this room, the amazing people who spend every day of their life trying to make the world a more beautiful place.
“The amount of people that tried to get me a celebrity f—ing deal. They said, ‘You need to do boot-cut jeans, or you won’t sell.’ Shut the f— up ! Or Hedi Slimane in the motherf—ing Mercer, sitting with me, saying, ‘Stop giving them your ideas, Kanye. Do your own thing.’ Hedi Slimane! To feel so frustrated. And I thank anybody who came to this party, everybody who supported, everybody who believed, because people thought it was a joke, and maybe people still do, but I can only grow from this point.”
Am I missing something. Kanye took out loans to pay the models for his show? What is that all about? So he could write them off if…..? Someone fill me in….. Louis wouldn’t let Kayne design another shoe? Poor Baby…
Kanye does indeed make the world a more beautiful place.
