In a fashion show preview, Kanye declared that he didn’t want his work to be described as ‘fashion’.
“Let’s say apparel especially for the style of clothes I make. I’m not saying that this is a fashion proposition, I’m saying that this is a human proposition,” he said.
“I want to make pieces that can be timeless. Pieces that you can pick up out of a vintage store in 20 years and say, ‘Wow, I’m happy I have this’.”
