Kanye West Makes Debut at Paris Fashion Week

Just kidding! April fools! He just came out on stage to make a guest appearance. 

But sadly, I am not just kidding. I also don’t know how I feel about his debut. Check out the images below. What are your thoughts? Should celebrities use their name to come out with fashion labels? Sean Colmbs has done it with his Sean John line (shouldn’t it be Sean Colmbs?). Who’s to say that Kanye can’t do the same either? Well, apparently, no one can tell him what he can’t and can do. Money buys everything - for better or worse (except happiness of course). Shouldn’t there be some kind of prerequisite to being able to have your line in fashion week, like actual fashion sense and talent? 

I mean, let’s put this in perspective for anything else - for instance, mixed martial arts. Just because you think you’re good, doesn’t mean you can step in the ring with the best fighter in the world just because you’re rich. 

Anyway, what are your thoughts? 

Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.  

Kanye West debuted his womenswear collection at Paris Fashion Week and wore a plain white t-shirt, black Balmain biker jeans, and Air Jordan 6 “Infrared” sneakers.

Well, this is interesting, Lady Gaga! So, now that you saw the strangest fashion short, what is it about?  

To accompany the launch of his second Mugler womenswear collection-women’s ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2012-an exclusive short film in collaboration with Lady Gaga, directed by iconic photographers Inez and Vinoodh under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti, premiered at the Paris fashion week runway show, featuring a Lady Gaga never before heard remix.

In the video, Laday Gaga says, “she will eat you!” Although referring to Paris, I can’t help but feel she meant it more about her from the whole vibe of it. 

What are your thoughts about this short piece? Comment below, we’d love to hear from you. 

The Alexander McQueen of Technology - Where Fashion Meets Technology

Thanks to Gauri Sharma for sending this in! 

Iris Van Herpen is becoming a huge name in the fashion industry. But what makes her unique, is her ability to fuse various elements in tech with fashion. 

By manipulating technology, she tests the limits of fashion.”

"The fashion commentariat is proclaiming Iris Van Herpen the next Alexander McQueen. With Capriole, her Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection, it’s easy to see why. Revealed at the hyper-exclusive Paris Couture Show this summer, the 27-year-old Dutch fashion designer’s line packed the runway with so many showstoppers — from a tube dress that looked like it was frozen in ice to a frightening minidress crawling with slithery, Medusian coils — it could’ve knocked Anna Wintour’s sunglasses right off her helmet head. As one blogger put it: “Ladies and gentlemen, I think we just found our next fashion legend. HO. LY. SHIT.”
