Unflatteringsilhouettes, open zippers, no focus — oh my! Kanye West's much-hyped debut collection at Paris Fashion Week, named DW by Kanye for his late mother Donda West, fell short. Really short. The critics panned it, most agreeing the musician should stick to his primary occupations of music and Twitter. While West certainly is passionate about fashion, his first effort was less than inspired.... but givethe guy a chance — this was hastily organized, and maybe West will improve with more experience. After all, where can he go from here but up?
