Kanye West's Fashion Snub
A fashion house believes the rapper's image is not right for their brand...
Even Kanye West doesn't have it all his way...
The producer/rapper wanted to attend Spanish fashion house Balenciaga for Paris Fashion Week (which ended Sunday, March 2nd) but his request was turned down.
According to reports, Balenciaga didn't feel his hip hop image was right for the tone of the runway show.
Surprisingly Kanye who is famous for his 'opinion' didn't mind too much, saying: "I totally love and respect any designer that won't let me come 2 there show... it's their show... they don't owe me anything."
He continued "Balenciaga is one of the illest lines right now and I don't feel any type of way about not getting in!
There's always a catch 22 in being a celeb ... your motives are always questioned... but only time will show my true love MY FIRST LOVE is for fashion and I appreciate just being in a position 2 afford 2 be able 2 spend a week in Paris visiting shows."
The Through The Wire star added "I never use my blog 2 clear stuff up... but this is so close 2 my heart I had 2 say something... Anyone saying something negative has it wrong, they've got me wrong... I just want 2 make great art on every level and fashion shows are one of the best forms of art in the world.
Thank you Paris again for the inspiration!!!"
