The Fashion Industry Turns Against Kanye West

Following his most recent attention-seeking fashion stunts, Kanye West is now dealing with the fallout and severe criticism. Fashion industry experts harshly attacked and slammed the provocateur for his poorly handled attempt to make a statement about racism after having models walk the runway wearing “White Lives Matter” T-shirts during his YZY show in Paris on Monday.

For his part, West has backed up the “fashion statement” he received Candace Owens’ support for and used social media as a weapon to claim that “Black Lives Matter was a scam,” criticize Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, the editor of Vogue, for calling his White Lives Matter show “incredibly irresponsible and dangerous,” and blame the CEO of LVMH for the passing of his purported “best friend,” Virgil Abloh.

In other words, he has provided additional nonsense to support his gibberish-built YZY line. The greatest way to put it was by the editor of Vogue: “The T-shirts this man conceived, produced, and shared with the world are pure violence,” wrote Karefa-Johnson. “There is no excuse, there is no art here.”

Karefa-Johnson had earlier in the day discussed the show and remarked that while West “was trying to illustrate a dystopian world in the future when whiteness might become extinct,” the show instead had the exact opposite impact.
