The ever so famous Kardashian trio (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney) successfully launched their clothing venture, Kardashian Kollection, in U.S. Sears stores in 2011. Amidst many fans' disapproval of the Kardashian Kollection being "costly", "cheaply made" or "disappointing", it doesn't seem to be stopping these three as they continue to move forward in not only taking over wardrobes, but the world it seems.
Suffice it to say, it's now 2013 and the brand has seen some rapid growth and still gathers a worldwide fan base despite the negative out-pourings by others. Above it all and in celebration of their newest ready-to-wear collection being released in Australia in September 2013, the Kardashians revealed their newest collection on August 24, 2013, in their first ever runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Sydney; the fashion equivalent of the U.S. fashion week in NYC.
According to reports, the Kardashian Kollection handbags were a hot-seller in Australia--so it only made sense that the Kardashians would allow the "land down under" to claim the privilege of having the first-ever Kardashian Kollection runway show. However, despite the logic and strategy to this move, eyebrows were still raised by U.S. fans and some even took to instagram to attack photos that emerged from the global-themed Chanel-inspired runway show.
U.S. fans questioned why the "first-ever" runway debut was done elsewhere. Other fans, globally, and especially those in Australia, were outraged and took to social media to attack the trio as neither Kim, Khloe or Kourtney were present at the fashion show for their very own collection.
Despite the present negativity towards the perceived shun by the sisters for not being at their own fashion show, the runway show audience reviews of the collection were stellar; generating a response by many that style and fashion is still at the top of the Kardashian trio's game. From signature Kardashian-esque blazers to sheer multi-printed blouses, this ready to wear collection will have all of Australia trying to "keep up with the Kardashians" and their ever-evolving style. Styles were fun, youthful and playful while easily being transformed from officewear to after five wear for the woman on the go--a lifestyle most indicative of the sisters.
Hopefully the Kardashian sisters will give its U.S. fans the pleasure of taking sloppy seconds for a runway show soon--or find a way to make up for this intentional oversight. If not, oh well...they will be moving on and hitting all their remaining fans up with another "costly", "cheaply made" and "disappointing" venture sometime in the near future.
