Kanye West has fashion victim fears

Kanye West has mused about whether he's a "trend setter" or a "complete f**king fashion victim".

The rapper-turned-fashion designer has mused about his style credentials. Kanye launched his clothing label Kanye West at Paris Fashion Week in October and has since been in the spotlight for his style choices.

The star took to his Twitter page to discuss his recent wardrobe choices and the beginnings of his passion for fashion.

"....hmmmmm what to wear... here I go again... Yeezy the trend setter or complete f***ing fashion victim ... the verdict is still out," he said.

"My Mom would wear blue jeans with a fur and an embellished "Cosby Show" sweater : ) to pick me up from school... the teachers said I couldn't focus... I used to get kicked out of class for bringing dirty mags and drawing Nikeys in 4th grade (sic)."

Kanye is proud of his self-aided fashion line. The 34-year-old firstly cleared up rumours of its name before explaining the roots of his label.

"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 : ). I really appreciate the fake DW twitter page but since it's not official I can't co sign any information on it," he wrote.

"I love being back at my fashion office learning and creating. It's so challenging and fun and I'm surrounded by amazing people. You guys might think I have some type of backing for my line but I don't. I did the first fashion show out of my own pocket and used the money I made touring to follow my passion.

"I've been working at this for 8 years now ...from the first offers to do urban clothing lines that I turned down... To begging Bape to do my line and never making any real headway... (sic)."

Kanye also spoke about his recent fashion purchases on his Twitter page. The star admitted that he hadn't been very extravagant of late.

"I know this is not a very rapper thing to say but I haven't bought a new car or piece of jewelry in about 2 years... (sic)" he wrote.
