Kanye West Will Present His First Womenswear Collection During Paris Fashion Week

It's been confirmed (finally), Kanye West will indeed present his first womenswear collection during Paris Fashion Week on Saturday, October 1 at 9:30pm.

Although the show's location has not been disclosed--we do know the outspoken rapper will be following an impressive lineup of designers that day, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Viktor & Rolf, Junya Watanabe and Sonia Rykiel. Wowza!

But West has positioned his Spring/Summer 2012 collection to be viewed amongst the best by teaming up with London-based knitwear designer Louise Goldin to create the line and Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci serving as a mentor.

We can't wait to see who will be filling the front row. The show is sure to be the talk of Paris, the internet and the World.
