1) Kanye West: West has been seen all over the fashion shows, posting this photo on his blog, giving bunny ears to Marc Jacobs. Guess it's no surprise that the performer would be entering into the celeb designing game. Per WWD, at Paris' Jardins de Bagatelle Friday for Louis Vuitton, he told the "that he's collaborating on a men's shoes line for the brand...West was dressed head to toe in his own designs, and said his women's line will follow for fall." Get ready for a ton of hype... from Kanye, that is. [WWD, subscription req]
2) Janet Jackson: We mentioned the singer is designing an intimates line. We find out a little more about the line via WWD, "Jackson plans to put a mix of fashions into her forthcoming lingerie collection, due for release at year's end." She told the pub: "It's classic, but modern with a bit of vintage inspiration." [WWD, subscription req]
