Kanye Won't Show at Fashion Week, Boo

Despite all threats to the contrary, Kanye West will not—repeat, will not—show his latest namesake fashion collection at Paris Fashion Week, which kicks off tomorrow. Boo, sad face.
Despite early successes—well, at least with audience turnout (West's previous shows attracted a front row that included major industry names such as Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld)—West's PR agency has confirmed that the rapper will not be showing DW by Kanye West for spring 2013.
It's unclear, at this point, whether West has pulled the plug on his luxury line or whether this is simply a hiatus—plenty of designers who don't show on the runway continue to hold buyers' and editors' appointments.
Are you sad that Kanye won't be showing his clothes at Paris Fashion Week? It was always a good, uh, break in the middle of a rather heavy show schedule, wasn't it? Something to look forward to, though, probably not for the right reasons. Aaaahhh, we can be such fashion bitches sometimes.
