Kanye West, seen above cracking up Ellie Goulding and Sienna Miller at the recent Burberry show, will be unveiling his womenswear collection at Paris Fashion Week tonight. But just a couple days ago he was spotted in London buying £14,000 worth of fabric in an East London shop. The owners of London Trimmings says that the rapper was very down to earth.

His collection is rumored to be anything but. It is said to be inspired by sports luxe, Japanese samurai and experimental knitwear, and outlandish to the point of unwearability. On the one hand, it's nice to see a musician look at a clothing line as something more than a logo-riddled cash cow created to capitalize on their fan base. On the other hand, are avant-garde fans of experimental fashion going to want to invest in Kanye? Guess we'll find out.
