Australian Yeezy designer Bianca Censori was thrust into the spotlight this week after marrying Kanye West in a non-legally binding ceremony.

And now the Melbourne-born bride’s family have spoken out about Bianca’s decision to wed the troubled rapper.

Speaking to the Herald Sun, one of Bianca’s sisters, Angelina Censori, asked for ‘privacy’ but admitted that the family was happy with the news.

‘It’s very exciting news for both my sister and the family but we choose to have some privacy for the time being,’ she said.

Another relative, Alyssia Censori, said she was ‘super happy for them both’.

The rapper, 45, is said to have held a private ceremony with the Aussie designer, 27, and the pair have been spotted wearing wedding rings.

A Kim Kardashian lookalike through-and-through, Censori hails from Kew, Victoria where she went to Carey Baptist Grammar School, according to her LinkedIn.

After graduating from high school, she started her own jewellery company Nylons as she completed a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Melbourne from 2013-2017.

The business began with her friend Irene when they created chokers and bracelets made from Swarovski crystals for themselves and friends, before they realised the potential to set up a store.

In the last two years of her degree, Censori also worked as a design consultant at Kelektiv, a furniture design company in the city.

Censori then moved on to DP Toscano Architects in Collingwood where she stayed as she went for her Masters in Architecture.

In November of 2020, it appears she left Australia right after she graduated from university and moved to Los Angeles to work for West as the Head of Architecture at his fashion design company Yeezy.

Not much else is known about Censori, as she deactivated her social media accounts quickly after the news about her secret nuptials with West broke.

The music artist’s followers were stunned by the news, with many left scratching their heads about who Censori is and how their relationship began.

Last month, West paid tribute to his ‘wife’ by releasing the track Censori Overload – a play on her last name.

In the lyrics he revealed that he stayed celibate before tying the knot, singing: ‘And The Bible said, I can’t have any more sex til marriage.’

The song appears to reference his split from Kardashian, opening with the lines: ‘Waking up to “I can’t do this anymore” text’, adding ‘I know it’s ’cause the headlines / Why she wanna leave.’

West is said to have held a private ceremony with Censori and the pair have been spotted wearing wedding rings.

The Stronger hitmaker wore his band on a lunch date earlier this week, with sources telling the site the ring symbolises his commitment to her following the ceremony.

However, the union isn’t legal because the pair do not appear to have filed a marriage certificate, reported.
