My Personal Style Icon Kanye West

Many people when they think of their personal style icon its usually a person like Olivia Palemero, Alexa Chung, Rihanna or many number of Fashionistas. I have one  person that comes to  mind when I think of my own personal style icon and I’m not just inspired by his fashion. That person of course you would have guessed through the title is the one and only Kanye West.

I have been a fan of Kanye and his music since I was 12years old and probably listen to his music everyday. You will find some album always in the car cd player. Its not just his style that influences me, it his music. His creativity and I think most importantly his personal belief in himself that he can do anything he wants as long as he sets his mind to do it and well, if that isn’t inspiring I really don’t know what is.  Go check out his interview with Zane Lowe the first part is here .


I have had this idea since I began my blog, I will be doing a series of posts of the style evolution of Kanye, but instead of having just images of his looks. I will take elements of his look at a certain time and incorporate it into my style. So it will be my personal take on Kanye’s style. I will do a different look every week.

Let me know, your thoughts on this blog series idea. I would love to here both your opinions on it and also your opinions on Kanye whether it be postive or negative. Below are a few of my favourite looks from Kanye:
