Kanye’s collection for Adidas was shown during NYFW and definitely was highly buzzed about with stars like Kendall Jenner, Beyonce, Jay Z, Justin Bieber and Rihanna all in attendance. While his latest collection has been a success, Kanye told Style.com that even he has struggled breaking into the fashion world.
“I guess I got a little more credit for my second collection than my first, for whatever that is worth,” Kanye revealed about the success of his collection. “But soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars.”
“And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me,” he continued. “They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me.”
Kanye has been known to dress Kim to which he said, “She was always my muse, now she’s become other designers’ muses. Or designers’ muses, because like I said, I don’t want to disrespect designers by calling myself a designer, I just think I have a vision of something that I want to do.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, a source revealed that “Kanye will 100% respond to Amber via a song which will be dropped on a mix tape or on a future album,” our insider revealed. “He will get the last laugh.”
His diss could even include Wiz Khalifa, Amber’s ex. “All options are on the table, he will definitely get his feelings out in a full song or a lyric in a song. Amber will hear his wrath.”
