Kanye West Reveals Womens Wear Line at Paris Fashion Week

Kanye West introduced his first clothing line, DW by Kanye West, at Paris Fashion Week.  DW by Kanye West is a womens wear collection dedicated to his mother, the late Donda West.  The Ready to Wear Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show took place at the Lycee Henri IV in Paris, France on October 1, 2011.  Kanye West has been spotted in the front row of many runway shows over the years, and he was apparently taking notes and gaining inspiration for his upcoming clothing line.

The audience consisted of several big names in fashion such as Alexander Wang, Sylvia Fendi, Anna Wintour, Lindsay Lohan, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Ciara just to name a few.  Kanye mainly used black, cream, and white palettes with  plunging necklines, tasteful cut-outs, high leg slits, fur collars, and a few asymmetrical hems.

Here are several of the looks from the DW by Kanye West collection. *photo credit

Here are some of my favorite looks from the collection:

I think out of all the looks, this cut-out dress (or it may be a top and a skirt) is one of my favorites.  Definitely something I would wear in a heartbeat.

Kanye used Jourdan Dunn as one of his runway models

Chanel Iman (right) also model some of the runway looks

Two other looks that Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn modeled down the runway

He added a little color to some of the pieces.

All of the shoes worn by the models in the show were specially designed by Giuseppi Zanotti

Mr. West kept his attire simple sporting a white tee and jeans.

I personally loved most of the looks from the collection.  The price point hasn't been revealed yet, but hopefully it will be affordable because I definitely saw a few pieces that I would rock.  Ladies, what do you think of DW by Kanye West? Is it something you would wear?

I actually really liked some of the pieces from the collection, and am disappointed critics were so harsh on him. I feel like even if the pieces were bomb folks were already looking to bash it. *shrug* If the price is right, i might get me something from the line.
