Kanye West seeks “Steve Jobs of Gap” status
02/20/2015 // West Palm Beach, Florida, US // JusticeNewsFlash // Justice News Flash // (press release)
Los Angeles – Kanye West, who recently spoke of his desires to become the “Steve Jobs of Gap,” says he lost a lot of business contacts in the fashion world when he started dating Kim Kardashian. The two are now married with a daughter.
As reported by WebProNews, he now says that the fashion world snub may have been a good thing because it prompted him to start over.
According to WebProNews, West said in a statement to Style.com, “As soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me….the so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school, where every day I was in my mom (Kris Jenner)’s house, in my little brother’s (Rob Kardashian)’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford… And day-by-day by day, Kim and I learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other.”
After creative director Rebekka Bay left her position, Gap announced an opening. West expressed interest in working for the large retailer by stating, “I’d like to be the Steve Jobs of Gap. Perhaps this is a bit of a demo tape. When I say Steve Jobs of the Gap, as I talk to the people at the Gap right now, I’m not talking about a capsule. I’m talking about full Hedi Slimane-creative-control of the Gap is what I would like to do. And I can say this because it doesn’t conflict with my Adidas contract.”
It’s not known whether or not Gap has offered West a position.
