Kanye West debuted his long-awaited line with Adidas Originals, dubbed “Yeezy Season 1,” during the New York Fashion Week last week, and while many were impressed, some of the big names in fashion are not.
Longtime fashion publicist/TV personality Kelly Cutrone trashed Ye’s line, telling People: “I’m not into his fashion thing. I think he’s fine as a rapper. I think he’s a joke as a fashion designer. I just think that you should stay focused at what you’re good at. Just because you’re a good rapper doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good fashion designer.”
Cutrone wasn’t along. Even Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week, isn’t a fan of Ye’s work as a designer. “I’m kind of over Kanye. I mean, I’m not a fan of his music, and the attitude and the agenda is not my style.”
