I guess we’ll have to watch the throne long distance because Kanye West has packed his Louis Vuitton bags and is planning a move to London to seriously pursue his fashion career.
Earlier this year, Ye debuted his women’s clothing line during Paris Fashion Week but despite the praise he receives for his own sense of style, the response to his ladies apparel was less than exciting. It makes sense for him to immerse himself in one of the biggest fashion capitals if he wants to be taken seriously, but some fans are already concerned about what the move from LA will mean for his music career.
Not to worry, Big Sean says the G.O.O.D. Music compilation album expected in Spring 2012 will be finished overseas and still released on time. Sounds like the team has a plan, let’s see how all this works out.
Do you think Kanye has a chance of becoming a serious force in the women’s fashion industry?
