Say what you will about Kayne West's first runway collection — which didn't exactly receive a standing ovation — but it is clear 'Ye is serious about making a splash. Grazia Daily reports that Kanye has just touched down in London town, making the move to the UK to focus on his budding fashion career. Yes, in case you weren't sure, there will be a second DW by Kanye West collection presented in March at Paris Fashion Week. Following the Watch the Throne tour, the full-time relocation for the rapper will provide him with the opportunity to get schooled at the Central Saint Martins College and get down to business. In addition, the move is beneficial as it will bring the designer within closer proximity to Katie Eary, the London-based designer whose been assisting him with the collection since its debut. No word when this American Boy will return to the states, but allow us to quote the man himself: "Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity shit." We hear ya' loud and clear, Yeezy. (Grazia Daily)
