Designers Afraid Kanye Will Jack Their Ideas


Insiders claim designers were reluctant to give Kanye West invites during Fashion Week in New York because they were concerned he might steal their designs for his new project...

From The NY Daily News
Kanye West is searching for inspiration, and he came to New York to find it.
The rapper made the rounds at Fashion Week for a clothing project he’s planning, and designers are expressing concern that he might try to rip off their ideas, sources tell Confidenti@l.
Sources tell us they’re worried that their creations will be copied by the rapper, who has turned to LinkedIn to help staff his new fashion business.
“It was something that was discussed beforehand — ‘Do we let him in and risk our ideas being sold off by him?’ ” says our insider.
West’s company posted job listings on LinkedIn last week, seeking a vice president of production and a chief financial officer for an unnamed “Kanye West clothing project.”

Keyshia is a theft, she hangs around thefts, and there is no stopping a theft when they want to steal. So fashion week be prepared to see your creations online with Keyshia's name on the labels.

@2:33pm that is not RWS's job to post on that kind of stuff, nor do the people that come to this site want to read about it. Go to cnn.com.

They just didn't want him there and serves him right, thinking he's an honorary white like OJ did. Yt will include him in some of their circles up to a point only when its beneficial to them.

That's bogus..designers "borrow" from each other every year. As for PUNKYA he needs to stop trying to design anything and go away with that cow he knocked up.


Macklamore said it best paying $50 for a t shirt?

Trust I LOVE nice things...but I won't get got!

What a ridiculous statement made by these designers (as if they ever had an original thought in their lives). Fashion industry is nothing more than a recycle bin. Everything old is new again. When is the last time (if ever) any of you have seen anything that is nothing more than a variation of something else. These designers are beginning to believe their own HYPE! Go for it Kanye, when in Fashion do as all designers do “COPY”!

You mean THIEF. Theft is an action, as in, there was a theft at the store down the street. A thief can commit a theft.

You're welcome.

poppycock. artists want to view other artists' work all the time. they are probably more upset that he may be nothing more than a charlatan who hasn't paid his fashion dues. does he even know how to sew, or know anything about construction? and that question goes out to all of the so-called designers. he obviously has good fashion sense, but it takes more than that to be a true designer, imo.

Well, he does associate with the Carters, so I can understand their fear. Thieves, I mean Birds, of a feather flock together.
