Kanye West is back in the fashion scene with his second collection, and will show it off at Paris Fashion Week on March 6th.
Since West’s first collection showed in October, he has gone to Twitter to clear up the confusion of the line’s name (it’s Kanye West, not DW), to tell his 8 year long story about trying to make it in the fashion industry and to announce the creation of a new design company named DONDA. Kanye also made it clear that he has a lot invested in this dream of his:
You guys might think I have some type of backing for my line but I don’t.
I did the first fashion show out of my own pocket and used the money I made touring to follow my passion.
Early 2011 … I moved to Paris and opened a small design studio… the language barrier was quite difficult…
The Kanye West Spring 2012 Collection has yet to be picked up by any retailers. Kanye has made it clear that he wants everyone to give him a chance to grow. With his prime location in Paris and help coming in from some of the best designers in the industry, it should be interesting to see what Kanye has cooked up since the end of the Watch The Throne tour.
