The rapper who is a fashion watcher said Lohan's design for French brand Ungaro is an example of a celebrity not taking fashion seriously.
Rapper Kanye West has taken aim at troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, insisting her style collection for Emanuel Ungaro put him off launching his own fashion range. The "Mean Girls" star, who is currently in rehab in California, designed a line for the French fashion house last year, but her creations were mauled by critics when they hit the runway, and she later quit her creative consultant post at the company.
West has branded Lohan's disastrous line the fashion equivalent of the September 11 terrorist attacks, and he admits the reaction to the star's range made him axe his own clothing venture Past Tell, which was due to hit stores in 2009.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Have you heard of a little thing called Lindsay Lohan's Ungaro collection? That was like the 9/11 of fashion. It was game over for me after that as no one would take a celebrity trying to do fashion seriously."
