North West, the daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, might be three but she has already developed a keen interest in all things fashion related and was recently spotted wearing a Louis Vuitton handbag reported to be worth £750.

The 35-year-old reality TV personality, model and businesswoman tweeted about her daughter's love of fashion on Saturday, explaining that North West picks out the fabrics for her own outfits.

“We make all of her clothes so she picks the fabrics at fabric stores!” Kardashian-West said.

The critic retorted: ”These are the kinds of things why people hate you”.

But Kardashian-West made sure to explain why she chose to invest in her daughter's fondness for fashion: “Because she has a passion [for] fashion and we've given her the tools [to] explore that? Spending time [with] dad at work isn't bad either”.

Her friend and model, Chrissy Teigen, chipped in, joking: “Babies can't play with tools, you MONSTER!”

Kardashian-West has spoken out about North West's interest in clothes in past. When North West was just 16 months old, she told Elle magazine: “She loves fashion. North doesn’t really like pink. Like, she’s very neutral. She doesn’t like prints. She hasn’t liked it for her whole life".

Kardashian-West prides herself on shutting down critics on social media and gave a tutorial on the best way to do so on her app last month.

“Just do whatever makes you feel good. Like, if you feel like talking sh*t to someone, go for it,” she said. “I personally take the high road most of the time. Like, I just don’t care. So I always think, will I be affected by this tomorrow? Will I be affected by it in a week? Will I be affected in a month? And in a year? And usually the answer is no.”
