Kanye West has lost arguably his biggest supporter in the fashion industry.
On Friday, Page Six reported that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour officially cut ties with West following his recent spate of antisemitic comments and his support of White Lives Matter.
According to a Vogue spokesperson, neither Wintour nor Vogue has “any intention” of ever working with West again.
As Page Six points out, Wintour and West had been friends for more than a decade, after she invited him to the Met Gala for the first time back in 2009.
In 2014, Wintour featured West and then-wife Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue, and last month modelled a pair of West’s Yeezy sunglasses in photos that were sent out in press releases promoting the new shades.
However, West’s recent statements — including his threat to “go death con 3 on Jewish people” — proved to be the last straw for Wintour.
“Anna has had enough,” an insider Page Six, adding, “She has made it very clear inside Vogue that Kanye is no longer part of the inner circle.”
Balenciaga Cuts Ties With Kanye West
Vogue‘s severing of ties with West came on the same day that haute couture fashion house Balenciaga similarly said it would no longer be working with West.
“Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist,” a rep for Kering — Balenciaga’s parent company — reportedly told Women’s Wear Daily.
