Madonna's beau turns designer

Madonna's boyfriend Brahim Zaibat has taken on a "war" with the fashion world by launching a controversial clothing line.

Dancer Brahim Zaibat has introduced Defend, a controversial collection of clothing which features gun motifs and questionable slogans.

The singer has already been spotted in one of his hoodies, a black baggy number featuring an AK47 rifle in white print and the word Defend in capital letters.

Madonna was instantly criticised for promoting the violent fashion range, which also includes clothes emblazoned with slogans such as 'countdown to violence' and 'war = peace'.

Apparently the Queen of Pop has also been using her connections to help Brahim's business, such as introducing him to Givenchy's creative director.

“Brahim knows dancing jobs can’t last forever and wants a successful business and to be taken seriously as a designer," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

“Madonna has lots of connections in the fashion world so has introduced him to people like her designer friend Riccardo Tisci.

“Brahim was seated front row at his Givenchy fashion show and wants to put in the work to learn more about the industry.”

Other celebrities who have been spotted in Brahim's designs include singers Chris Brown and Rihanna and actor Zachary Quinto.

Madonna is no stranger to the fashion world herself. She has a line of clothing called Material Girl, which she creates with her teenage daughter Lourdes. A number of high-profile women have been the face of the label, such as Kelly Osbourne and Taylor Momsen. Georgia May Jagger is currently starring in campaigns for the brand.
