Round 2 for Kanye at Paris Fashion Week confirmed

Round 2 for Kanye at Paris Fashion Week confirmed

It seems like a level-headed Kanye West did tweet the truth in his epic Twitter rant last month.

West will reveal his second collection at Paris Fashion Week in March, confirms his PR agency to WWD.

His line, previously named dW by Kanye West after his mother Donda West, is now an eponymous label that will show at 9 p.m. on March 6. The shift was explained in his Twitter novel: "The name of the line is Kanye West not DW... The Dw was a design element placed on the invite in homage to my mom."

Here's what we took from his Twitter tirade (in 160 characters or less): Ye's moved to London to study fashion design, insinuating how serious he is about his passion for fashion, and a future career in the industry.

He wrote, "Being a celebrity has afforded me many opportunities but has also boxed me in creatively."

What are your thoughts? Will Kanye's Fall/Winter 2012 collection be a success? His debut Spring/Summer 2012 collection received mixed reviews and retailers have yet to pick it up. However, perhaps with a more meticulous, professionally-trained look at design, Kanye can emerge on top.
