After being named “Stylemaker of the Year” by the Accessories Council last year, American rapper Kanye West has remained a dedicated icon on the fashion scene since his arrival to the hip-hop culture, and it doesn’t appear he’s going anywhere fast; despite trying to attend many major fall/winter 2011 fashion shows this year and being subsequently rejected.

We all know West is no stranger to fashion: he’s interned at Fendi, collaborated with Louis Vuitton for a shoeline, and with French graphic design team M/M for his limited edition collection of silk scarves.

But now it seems Kanye West is taking his fashion moves one step further to prove he’s dead serious about the industry. The rapper obviously takes fashion seriously, I mean, he performed in a surprise outfit that he’s working on for a collection in Paris. According to UK Telegraph, West has reportedly taken up residence in Paris and will show a collection for spring 2012 in a “presentation style format” this coming September.
