Kanye West praised by designer

Katie Eary felt "incredible" knowing that Kanye West came to support her London Fashion Week Show.

The London-based designer is collaborating with the American rapper on his debut womenswear line which is set to launch at Paris Fashion Week.

Katie showed her off-schedule presentation at London Fashion Week to an intimate audience of fewer than 100. The fashionista was thrilled Kanye was among her front row.

"It felt incredible," she told "The support is unbelievable. I sort of knew that he might be here, but it means such a lot to me that he came to my off-schedule show."

Katie is constantly astounded by Kanye's commitment to his upcoming line. She believes his dedication will take him far in the fashion industry, having already designed sneakers for French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

"I absolutely love working with him," she gushed.

"He's such a dedicated designer. It's not what everybody would think - he's more dedicated than I am. The time and the travel that he puts in is unbelievable. I feel jealous at his commitment."

Katie has been working alongside Kanye for the past four months. The star has detailed their working relationship.

"We bounce ideas off each other, sketch on the same page... we make a really good team. He's obviously piloting it, and we're working alongside," she said.

Katie launched her career in menswear before adding womenswear to her fashion credentials in September of last year. The 27-year-old fashionista is known for her statement designs.
