Just days after Kanye West made his designer debut at the 2015 New  York Fashion Week, a number of the industry's elites have spoken out, slamming the collection and referring to the rapper's first move onto the runway as a 'disaster' and a 'joke'.

The 37-year-old's partnership with sportswear brand Adidas Originals may have been loved by his fans but Fashion Week creator, Fern Mallis disclosed to the New York Post that she's 'over the musician, adding that his general agenda is 'not her style.'

She told the outlet, "I’m kind of over Kanye. I mean, I’m not a fan of his music, and the attitude and the agenda is not my style.”

Famed fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone, known for her appearance on Lauren Conrad's LA -based reality series The Hills, further blasted Kanye's designer attempt suggesting he concrentrate on his music and stop fashion for good.

She told People magazine, "'I’m not into his fashion thing. I think he’s fine as a rapper. I think he’s a joke as a fashion designer.”

She added that, "I just think that you should stay focused at what you’re good at. Just because you’re a good rapper doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good fashion designer.”

Kelly was also quickly pointed out that this is not the first time Kanye's attempts to launch himself as an authorized designer have gone south. 

"I mean, it’s not, he’s not legit. Have you seen the product?" she said. "Didn’t he have his own line in London, which was a disaster that he spent $10 million to do, that no one wore?”

Kanye's questionable fashion fail has already started to spawn its own collection of entertaining memes, including this one which features designer Ralph Lauren touching his cheeks.

It read: 'Nice try kid, but leave the fashion to me.'

A fan also wrote on Twitter: "I can't believe people are actually buying ripped clothing just bc kanye designed them. Bruh give me your clothes & I'll rip them for free."

Well, brother tried but should he give up?
