And the Kanye rumors keep on coming. We've been learning things bit by bit, but now we finally know that in a short while, the collection will debut at Paris Fashion Week. We've been wildly speculating about what it might look like for quite some time now, but today, Grazia reports that it was made in Turnmills, "an enormous now-defunct nightclub" in London.

Grazia stumbled across an insider, who didn't want to be named, but did feel comfortable enough saying the following:

Kanye was in fairly often; for all the fittings. [He] was very nice and polite and talked knowledgably about shape etc., but was prone to changing his mind a lot - in fact the whole process was slightly excruciating as there were SO many opinions that it took forever to get anything done.

The source goes on to say that he or she would be "amazed" if it actually got done in time, so who knows, maybe we won't be seeing it then. On top of that, they add that it "will be extraordinarily expensive; some of it is virtually unproduceable."
