The 40-year-old fashion designer is known to be a favorite of Kardashian and her husband rapper Kanye West -- even dressing the couple for their wedding -- but Tisci told Details magazine, the fashion community hasn't always be accepting of the reality star.
"I didn't care what people thought about Kim," he said. "In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends. I got killed because of this. But I didn't care. That is a friend, you see."
