Kanye West debuts womenswear collection at Paris Fashion Week

We’re used to seeing Kanye West sitting in the front row at fashion shows, but on Saturday, he was backstage.  The rapper-turned-designer payed homage to his mother, the late Donda West, with the debut of “Dw by Kanye West,” his first womenswear collection during Paris Fashion Week.

The star-studded audience included designers such as Riccardo Tisci, Alexander Wang, and Jeremy Scott, and celebrities Lindsay Lohan, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and Ciara, who tweeted, “KANYE is A GENIUS- TONIGHT was MONUMENTAL.”

Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard in da Paint” and Common’s “The Light” played as models strutted down the runway wearing Kanye’s creations.  Mr. West walked out to take a bow at the end, wearing a simple white T-shirt, black jeans, and Nike sneakers.

Congrats KanYeezy!  Pop the hood to feast your eyes on Kanye’s spring/summer 2012 collection.
