Katie Eary: Kanye's style is adored

Katie Eary thinks Kanye West's style choices appeal to the youth of today.

The British fashion designer is one of the hottest names in London style, and she counts Kanye as one of her biggest fans. During February's London Fashion Week Kanye even made a surprise visit to Katie's pop-up store to play his new album.

The two have also worked together, with Katie helping Kanye to launch his fashion line DW Kanye West in 2011.

"He does [dress amazingly]. I think, maybe not within the fashion world, but outside there's a whole youth of people that just adore his every waking moment, and what he wears and everything like that. He's amazing," Katie exclusively told Cover Media.

Kanye's label received a much better reception at his second Paris fashion Week show in March 2012, but since then he's seemingly turned his back on the line.

However his and Katie's friendship remains intact, and the designer wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

"His company is very like family. So once you're part of that, you're never not a part of it," she smiled.

Her work with Kanye has opened up the idea to collaborate with other hip-hop stars, and Katie is hoping one person in particular would be keen to collaborate.

"I'd love to work with Drake," she revealed.

For now she's is busy with her namesake label. Katie does have a few outside ventures though, recently teaming up with Fudge Hair to create a kit bag. The large red case features googly eyes on the front, adorned with eyelashes, reflecting Katie's quirky style perfectly.
