As reported Kanye West has finally revealed his high-end women’s Spring 2012 collection Dw in a Paris at Lycee Henri IV. Kanye dedicated his new fashion line to his mother Donda West, hint… Dw stands for Donda West. You all know the fashion elite could not pass up on the opportunity to see the fashion concoctions Mr. West had put together. Everyone from Ciara, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Mr. Hudson, Sky Ferreira, Carine Roitfeld, Anna Wintour, Jared Leto, Terry Richardson, Joseph Altuzarra, Dean and Dan Caton of Dsquared, Alexander Wang , Jeremy Scott, Suzy Menkes, Stefano Tonchi, Sally Singer and Robin Givhan came out to support.
Kanye received design help from British designers Louise Goldin, Katie Eary and fashion students from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and Giuseppe Zanotti who designed the shoes for the collection. It has been reported that Christine Centenera, an editor at Harper’s Bazaar Australia, is the muse behind the collection and one of Kanye’s industry consultants for the collection. I can also tell Kanye took a page out Balmain, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, and Helmet Lang design book for garment construction techniques. Kanye definitely did a lot of research before creating his line because the garments are constructed well. Overall the line is wearable, the only issue is that the price points probably will not be attainable for everyone. The jaguar rhinestone encrusted jackets and shoes gave me life!
