Love didn’t come easy for Yeezy. The rapper-designer explains that Kardashian’s disrepute as a reality TV star made fashion people cautious and distrustful of her, and, by association, West; bringing his prestige down a notch, reported gossipcop.com
“As 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,” says West. “They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me.”
He continues, “The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school,” West reflected. “Every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s [Rob Kardashian]’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford… And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other,” reported US Weekly.
He says of his now-wife, “She was always my muse, now she’s become other designers’ muses. 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. But God has a special way to teach people through life.” Elaborating on his success at NY Fashion Week, he adds, “I guess I got a little more credit for my second collection than my first, for whatever that is worth.” West refers to Kim Kardashian’s physique as “the body of all bodies” and it is what inspires his designs.
