This is what happens when you coon and buffoon and try and impress a group of people who will never like you no matter what you do.
Kanye West debuted his Adidas Originals collection last week in Manhattan, and the reviews have been decidedly mixed. But the rapper-designer’s harshest critic could be New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis. “I’m kind of over Kanye,” she recently told Page Six. “I mean, I’m not a fan of his music, and the attitude and the agenda is not my style.” Now West has responded to Mallis’ criticisms via Twitter – using a zen-like tone.
“To Fern Mallis: I just want you to understand that attempting to do clothing has been very difficult,” West wrote. “And I have encountered countless amounts of bigotry along the way. I have millions of ideas, and I represent a new generation just trying to express themselves in a broken world.
“I don’t call myself a designer as I was not allowed to go to Saint Martins – because I was too famous by the time I realized I wanted to design. Fame is often looked down upon in the design world, so it’s actually been something I had to overcome.”
West ended the tweet spree with an adamant stance on pursuing his passions, even extending an offer to chat with Mallis over drinks. “All we have are our dreams, and you can step on our dreams and ideas all you want, but we won’t stop fighting,” he wrote. “We want to innovate, and we will win some day. If you wanna have a drink with me, book a table at [New York restaurant] Spotted Pig when I’m back in NY.”
