New York Fashion Week's Creator Slams Kanye West Fashion Collection

Since the beginning Kanye West has expressed his love for fashion and getting shut out by higher ups for attempting to cross over from rapper to designer.  Despite the cold shoulders from some, Mr. West debuted his first collection at New York Fashion week. The collection may have gone well for his fans, but those same higher-ups aren't feeling what he's bringing to the table. 

The Daily mail reports, 

"Shortly after the 37-year-old's collaboration with sportswear brand Adidas Originals was showcased at a star-studded catwalk show in Manhattan on Friday, Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis revealed to the New York Post that she is 'over' the musician, adding that his general agenda is 'not her style'. 

'I’m kind of over #Kanye,' she said. “I mean, I’m not a fan of his music, and the attitude and the agenda is not my style.' 

And the fashion veteran isn't alone in her opinions. Renowned fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone, who is known by many for her appearance on Lauren Conrad's LA-based reality series The Hills, also offered up a harsh critique of Kanye's design attempts, while suggesting that the father-of-one should stick to music and avoid any other fashion-focused ventures. 'I’m not into his fashion thing,' she told People magazine. 

'I think he’s fine as a rapper. I think he’s a joke as a fashion #designer. 'I just think that you should stay focused at what you’re good at. Just because you’re a good rapper doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good fashion designer.'
