Kanye West Responds To Fashion Pioneer: 'I Don't Call Myself A Designer'

Kanye West just debuted his collection with Adidas during New York Fashion Week and he's already getting flak for it.

Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week, had some bones to pick with Yeezy, telling the New York Post "I'm kind of over Kanye." And in addition to not liking his music, she says that the rapper's famous ego and his "agenda is not my style."

On Friday morning, West responded to Mallis' statement in what looks like an open letter to the the founder via Twitter.

And as the icing on the cake, West wants to get drinks with Mallis.

Although West directly references Mallis, she wasn't the only critic that wasn't that impressed with his collection. The Cut's critic-at-large Cathy Horyn penned a review on West's show, noting that the positive views on the clothing had more to do with his fame and power than his talent as a designer. And let's not forget her coined phrase that'll be ringing in a few minds for a while: "Kanye West hasn't graduated fashion school yet."

We guess it's time to do what even Kanye does best: The Kanye Shrug.
