Kanye West Speaks About His Place in Fashion World

Kanye West's foray into the fashion world is not without its critics, but the rapper remains focused. He says that he gets love from big name designers like Alexander Wang and Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy.
And that is why he keeps going.
He said, "They support me one hundred percent. They sent flowers, emails, and just love. They know I'm in that design office. They know I'm there giving an opinion. They know the concept of celebrity designer is so far out the window... You don't think celebrity designer, straight designer, black designer, all these types of things that kind of held me back conceptually in being accepted as a designer. You just think of those words. But when those moon boots come out, you put them on your feet and just swag out and go somewhere with your friends, those words don't matter."
He has a good point there.
