-Kanye’s alleged fashion muse is Christine Centenera, an editor at Harper’s Bazaar Australia. She’s a fashion scene socialite, and has fantastic style…I’m a fan too. (See a photo in the gallery)

-Kanye’s new line is being handled by fashion publicity powerhouse Karla Otto, the same pr flack who handles Jil Sander, Marni, Pucci, etc.
-The show is being presented at a Paris middle school, called Lycee Henri IV. See MTVStyle for photos of the entrance
