Tyga gets fashion advice from Kanye West
Tyga has learned a lot about fashion from Kanye West.
The 26-year-old rapper and Kanye have become friends due to their respective relationships with sisters Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West and Tyga has been allowed access to the inner workings of the hip hop superstar's label Yeezy.
From spending time at Yeezy's offices and with his pal Kanye, 39, Tyga has absorbed information that has helped him create his own new capsule collection with Marcelo Burlon.
In an interview on website Harpersbazaar.com, the 'Rack City' hitmaker - who appears in Alexander Wang's fall 16 campaign - said: "I think whenever you're around Kanye, you gotta take notes. The advice is taking notes, because everything he does and everything he says is very detailed and very up front. He's always one hundred per cent in what he says. Even going to his warehouse and modelling for a lot of his new season stuff taught me about my silhouette, how the clothes fit - I've definitely learned a lot being around him."
Tyga also revealed the inspiration behind his own capsule collection comes from "street style" and the type of clothes that people wear everyday.
The songwriter - who has three-year-old son King Cairo with his ex-fiancée Blac Chyna, who is now engaged to Rob Kardashian and is expecting his baby - was thrilled to get the chance to create his own clothes because he has always relied on his look for his "swag".
He said: "I've always been into dressing and being stylish because I feel like that's where I gained a lot of my confidence and swag as a rapper, so fashion goes hand-in-hand with music to me. But I never knew that I would be actually designing clothes or as into fashion as I am now. I'm happy that I'm learning and a lot of these fashion houses are willing to collaborate. I just want to put my swag to what they're doing, because I like street style. I like comfortable clothes. Most men in the world wear T-shirts every day and jeans. I wanted to always put my street style to the high fashion looks and just make it comfortable and make it look stylish."
