Kanye West's Lohan Jibe

Lindsay Lohan's critically-slammed collaboration with Ungaro put Kanye West off creating a fashion line.

The rapper described the designing efforts of the troubled actress - whose spring/summer 2010 collection for the French fashion house was heavily criticised - as "9/11 for celebrities doing fashion", as it made him realise he wasn't capable of creating a line himself.

He said: "Did you not see the Lindsay and Ungaro collection? That was 9/11 for celebrities doing fashion. After that I thought, 'Well I can't do a line now'.

"There are so many ups and downs, hurts and pains in fashion. It's extremely frustrating, because I do have opinions on colour palettes and fabrics, but do I have the time to pick out every belt buckle?"

The hip-hop star revealed meeting Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld in Paris made him realise the only way he could make a fashion collection work would be if he were closely involved with a designer.

Kanye added to Britain's Elle magazine: "These women would die for Karl, they were so into perfecting that next Chanel dress, which no one else could make. I don't have 20 years of fashion experience, and my father wasn't a tailor able to train me. The only way it would work was if I sat next to a designer."

While the 33-year-old musician cites late British designer Alexander McQueen as one of his biggest creative influences, he admitted he is disappointed he never got to see one of his shows in person.

He stated: "I was so hurt that I could never see his shows up close, but it was amazing to see his vision brought to life in his last collection."
