Kanye’s sphere of influence in the fashion world spreads beyond the colour palettes and silhouettes that he helped to popularise in the late 2010’s. Many designers who worked as part of the teams at Yeezy and Donda have gone on to start their own brands which were accepted by the fashion community.
