Fashion Week designers say they're worried Kanye West will try to steal their ideas

Kim Kardashians boyfriend debuted his first clothing line in 2011 and recently collaborated with the highly respected French fashion house A.P.C. on a menswear line. Goldin also consulted with West for his own knitwear line. As for Fashion Week, our source speculated: He is there because he is coming out with a new clothing line and is desperate for ideas on whats hot.
