As you’re well aware, one week from tomorrow Kanye will present his very first clothing collection at Paris Fashion Week. Kanye has confirmed that this is going down, and now one of his collaborators is speaking about the project. Katie Eary, welcome to the big time.
Eary held her own presentation a couple of days ago during London Fashion Week. Not only was Kanye in attendance, tracks off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch The Throne played during the show. (That’s awkward though, right? That Kanye was there listening to his own songs?) Elle UK was also there, and while Yeezy wouldn’t chat with the magazine, Eary was more than happy to discuss her work with the rapper.
“I absolutely love working with him. He’s such a dedicated designer. It’s not what everybody would think—he’s more dedicated than I am. The time and the travel that he puts in is unbelievable. I feel jealous at his commitment. We bounce ideas off each other, sketch on the same page. We make a really good team. He’s obviously piloting it, and we’re working alongside.”
Eary was mum about who else is involved, though we assume Christine Centenera and Louise Goldin are definitely among the Kanye crew. After the show, Kanye congratulated Eary and headed back to the studio, which is rumored to be a former nightclub called Turnmills. “I’ll be there tomorrow. For the next eight days—we’re going to hammer this out,” she responded.
So, that’s the daily Kanye DEBUT FASHIONZ update. And for what it’s worth, here’s Eary with the Queen:
