Kanye West is PFW party regular

Kanye West attended a host of after-show parties at Paris Fashion Week.

Last year the American R&B singer was shut out of fashion shows at the prestigious event because he failed to confirm his attendance.

However, this year the star sharpened up his act and was spotted mingling with the industry's fashion elite.

The rapper attended Givenchy's after-party with Chanel Iman, and was seen at former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld's vampire-themed ball at club Chez Raspoutine. The singer wasn't baring his fangs, but he did wear some stylish leather trousers for the occasion.

The singer presented his highly-anticipated debut womenswear collection on October 1. The rapper-turned-designer paid homage to his mother, the late Donda West, with the debut of DW by Kanye West.

The line featured flesh flashing, hooded dresses, with zip detailing and block colours. The collection also demonstrated Kanye's love of luxury with the occasional flash of opulent fur.

The star-studded audience included designers such as Riccardo Tisci, Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott.

Sadly though the collection has since been panned by critics. On his blog Kanye addressed the negative reviews.

"I thank anybody who came to this party," he wrote. "Everybody who supported, everybody who believed, because people thought it was a joke, and maybe people still do, but I can only grow from this point."
