Kim Kardashian recently faced heavy criticism for showing off her huge warehouse full of clothes after many fans called her collection “wasteful.” 30,000 pieces of clothing in storage is a lot for someone to have around. In classic Kim fashion, she decided to answer back to those critics.
Kardashian, who is the founder of her own clothing company, SKIMS, gained a lot of fame in the fashion world. Many believe that her rise to stardom is mainly influenced by her ex-husband, Kanye West. He went to great lengths to style her and had even revamped her whole closet, throwing away everything he didn’t like.
Kim has also opened up about how she faced difficulty styling her outfits since she split from Kanye West in February. In fact, after she made her first public appearance without taking any help from Ye, he called her to tell her she looks like Marge Simpson and that her career was “over. “
In the last week’s episode of The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian took a trip down her literal warehouse full of clothes. Obviously, fans were taken aback by the collection. It consisted of 30,000 garments that Kim wore at different parties and events over the years. Many took to Twitter to comment on the “wasteful” collection.
A person tweeted, “Kim k having a warehouse with 30,000 pieces of archived clothing she hasn’t seen since 2012 feels so wasteful.”
“Not because its cool to hate on Kim or whatever, but this goes beyond collecting fashion pieces. This is plain hoarding, and many young creatives may benefit and be inspired by seeing the same 30,000 pieces in a public institution like a museum,” wrote another person.
This criticism must have reached Kim and she decided to wear one of her old dresses to her sister, Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding. She wore a stunning black Dolce & Gabbana dress. Sharing pictures of herself from the wedding wearing the dress.
“Fun fact about this look for the wedding. I know you guys just saw me in my [archive] on last week’s episode of The Kardashians!” she went on. “I have every piece photographed and on an app. So when I knew I was going to Italy (LOVE a theme for a trip) I pulled all my Dolce & Gabbana clothes to try on again and see if I could re-wear anything!”
Kim also shared a photo from the 2011 Glamour Awards, where she was wearing the same black gown. She wrote alongside the post, “The dress I wore to the wedding was a Dolce & Gabbana I purchased at Bergdorff Goodman in 2011 and wore it to the Glamour Awards.”
Kardashian also reused another piece. She wrote, “But to make the dress more modern and more me, I wore this lace gloved [Vetements] dress I had in my closet for a layered lace look.”
Fans were surprised to see that Kim flaunted two of her old pieces from her untouched set of garments. One person wrote, “I didn’t think I could love this look more but the fact you made it from an existing piece makes it actually perfect. Please do this more and more to encourage us all to reuse and recycle.”
It just goes to show that Kim Kardashian pays attention to social media. If anyone could track down her burner account that might be the most epic online find ever. Check out these social media posts below!
