Zayn Malik has clearly kickstarted his quest for world fashion domination and it seems to be going well.
The singer declared earlier this month that he would be heading to Paris for the men’s shows in order to kickstart a career as a fashion designer and he hasn’t disappointed. Last night, the former One Direction hearthrob sat next to none other than fashion mogul and superstar rapper, Kanye West, one man who very much may be Zayn’s new idol.
As well as a wildly succesful music career, Kanye has managed to carve out time to make it as a fashion designer too. Although Zayn will still be focussing on his solo career, it is clear that fashion is another venture he is very keen on exploring. As well as rumours that a number of top brands are keen to work with Zayn, he has now made an impact on the FROW, suggesting that a clothing venture is just around the corner for Mr Malik.
Sitting on the FROW with Kanye and Joe Jonas at the prestigious Louis Vuitton show last night, Zayn looked beyond chic with his striking new ‘do and floral Louis Vuitton shirt, while Kanye sported a white jumper and jeans.

And it wasn’t just Louis Vuitton that wanted Zayn on the front row. The star stepped up his style game a notch earlier this week after turning up to the Valentino Men’s show in Paris last night looking dapper as hell.
The 22 year old was working his new blonde buzzcut alongside pal Joe Jonas and a suave ensemble consisting of a smart navy knee-length coat, a crisp white shirt and high-slung navy dress trousers.
With a diamond stud in one ear, his hand tattoos on show and a cheeky nose piercing to top things off, the former One Direction star marked the perfect balance between high fashion and bad boy. Nice.
It was one of the first times we had seen Zayn hit up the FROW, so of course, chaos in the crowd ensued after the singer’s unexpected arrival, and he was swiftly mobbed by excited 1D fans.
And after a crazy few months of leaving the biggest boy band in the world, dealing with rumour after rumour and attempting to carve his way into a solo career, it seems Zayn is finally feeling happier.
Tweeting after his front row experience, he wrote: ‘Feels good to be in Paris and see some familiar faces !! Big love to the fans x.’
And we expect much of that has to do with fiance Perrie Edwards, who Zayn is due to marry, and who he’s been seeing a lot more of since quitting One Direction.
The Little Mix star’s mum recently slammed rumours that Perrie was why Zayn quit, telling the Daily Mirror: ‘It was his decision and nothing to do with Perrie.’
She continued: ‘They’ve always been happy. Zayn’s one of the nicest boys I’ve ever met and I couldn’t imagine Perrie with anyone else.’
‘I feel like he’s already my son, they’ve been together since she was on The X Factor so he’s part of the family.’
