Kim and Kanye’s fashion fight over baby clothes

Kim and Kanye’s fashion fight over baby clothes

Following the birth of their first child Nori, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West decided to set up their own baby line, and while the project is still top secret, it is causing a rift between the pair.

Not long after Kim gave birth to baby Nori back in June, Kanye encouraged her to start her own children’s line, setting up meetings for her with fashion editor Carine Roitfeld and Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci.

“He thought it was a great way for her to be taken a little more seriously and cut the cord with her family. He wants her to establish a new career away from reality TV and this is how they think she can do it,” a source told Radar online.

“Kim really threw herself into it because she loves fashion and also because it makes Kanye happy.

“She seems desperate for him to respect her and approve of her.”

Kim is hoping that the new line will help her change her image from a reality TV star to a serious fashion designer, taking the pair out of the spotlight. But “control freak” Kanye won’t let Kim do things her way.

“He opened doors for her where they were once shut, which is great, but now he’s giving her his two cents on everything and it’s driving Kim crazy,” the source claims.

“The truth of the matter is that he doesn’t think Kim has good style and he knows whatever she produces will be a direct reflection on him. He doesn’t trust her to do her own thing.”

Kanye has had no problem showing his disapproval for Kim’s style and famously threw away half of her wardrobe on an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

While Kim wants the line to be low brown, Kanye wants Kim to launch an “extremely high-end and expensive” brand.

“He wants her to use Givenchy, Celine, and Lanvin as inspirations for her sketches,” the source said.

“Kim does, but she says she wants to use Nori as her ‘muse’ and translate her own favorite outfits into ones for the baby.

“So far, it’s just all kinds of wrong and Kanye is constantly correcting her on how to dress Nori.”

The pair, who recently attended Paris Fashion Week came home with numerous expensive designer outfits for their daughter gifted to them by designers like Givenchy, Celine, and Lanvin.

The source adds that Kim is growing tired of the constant corrections from Kanye.

“Kim joked to Kanye that he should give up music for a full-time job in fashion but it didn’t go over well,” the source said.

“Nobody, including Kim, speaks to Kanye like that, especially if they don’t want to see his temper. Kanye snapped at her over it.

“Of course Kim just backed down after that and now she’s suddenly obsessed with creating minimal, fashion-forward outfits for kids. Which just happens to be exactly Kanye’s style.”
