Alicia Keys and Kim Kardashian attended Kanye West's ready-to-wear fall/winter 2012 fashion show at La Halle Freyssinet in Paris on March 6, 2012.
"I learned a lot from the last one (collection - editor's note), Kanye West told the Wall Street Journal. I'm learning every day. I'm a new designer. I'm taking baby steps."
The hip-hop superstar debuted his "DW Kanye West" clothes line in October as part of Paris Fashion Week in France, but the preview of his 2012 spring/summer line failed to impress notoriously tough fashion critics.
He returned to the French fashion event this week to unveil his new womenswear collection on Tuesday , but the New York Times reports West abruptly cancelled plans to show his designs to the press earlier in the day.
The publication’s fashion blog quotes the star as saying, “I don’t know about this. I got treated unfairly by the press last time. Why would I want to do this?” and when asked whether he would like to explain his designs to editors, he replied, “No. If they don’t understand it, they don’t understand it.”
