So Bombers and Bombshells, any plans to cop yourselves some jams and jellies made by MJ? (WWD)

For a rising designer, Katie Eary‘s certainly enjoyed a tremendous amount of success. Her creations have been spied on the likes of RihannaBig Sean, and Jaden Smith, and she’s also collaborated with hip-hop’s most passionate fashionisto, Kanye West. Eary recently spoke to the Evening Standard about how her partnership with Yeezy came about. She was fresh out of design school, when in 2011 she got an e-mail from the rapper who said he saw some of her bedazzled pieces, and was interested in working together. “He said my stuff made him happy,” Eary said. “The freshness of the clothes and attention to detail appealed to him. I couldn’t have done it with womenswear. If you’ve got Swarovski crystals, pink and feathers in women’s that’s normal but if you do it with menswear, as I did, people notice.” (Evening Standard)
