Jeremy Scott spoke to HELLO! Fashion about his first meeting with Kylie Jenner

"I love her!" he told us at the launch of his second capsule collection for CYBEX. "She loves Moschino and she's wearing it all the time – she's posting and doing photoshoots, she's so passionate about my work."

Jeremy, who met Kylie while he was working with Caitlyn Jenner on a fitting, revealed that he was excited to finally meet the 18-year-old star, and brought along a Moschino Barbie doll as a gift to thank her for all of her support.

"She's so sweet and gentle – such a nice girl," he said. "So well-behaved and well spoken. She didn't just talk the talk, she's very composed. She told me, 'I love what you do, I've been following you for the last couple of years, I love everything'. She was so happy about the doll."

The fashion designer admitted that he had been in awe when he saw Kylie's relationship with Caitlyn Jenner, describing the young star as "so loving" towards her father.

"I love how she is with Caitlyn especially – she adores her, she's obsessed with her," he said. "She's so loving. She's doing coloured extensions for Caitlyn or wanting to share her lipstick, I just love how she has been so genuinely open to Caitlyn becoming Caitlyn. "

It's not just Kylie who made quite the impression on Jeremy – he admitted that he had been particularly touched by Caitlyn herself after the star made her public transition earlier this year.

"Caitlyn is a good person – she deserves everyone's love," he said. "She's a genuine person – if you ever get to hear her story from herself, it's heartbreaking."

He added: "I'm so happy she's reminded us all to be our authentic self – it doesn't matter if it's not about transgender, we all have an authentic self that we should live up to the fullest.

"She's been a wonderful inspiration to me in that way so I love her. I hope the world can love her and realise how genuine she is."

The CYBEX by Jeremy Scott Capsule Collection is available exclusively at 10 Corso Como, Milano until end of 2015 and will be available in selected stores worldwide from January, 2016.
