Yeezy Taught Me

On Friday I posted this pic of Kanye West on The Seventh District Facebook page and captioned it: NOBODY can wear a suit like Kanye! I absolutely adore his style!

I was elated to hear some Kanye related fashion news this afternoon! Louise Wilson, a professor at British fashion school Central St. Martins, has confirmed reports that Kanye West is working on a womenswear label with British designer Louise Goldin. The course director of the MA Fashion at CSM, said:

“He is very knowledgeable about fashion and interested – he is also interesting, he has an individual point of view.He has visited the college twice – most recently about employing interns to work on a variety of projects. He has supported the fashion school (with its fundraising regarding its move to Kings Cross) with a donation. I have not however been working closely with him on a collection but I certainly wish him well.”

What we should expect

I think we can expect a well-considered collection, you wouldn’t expect less from a pair of professionals and I warn against dismissing it in haste. There are those who might assume Louise will be doing all the work and Kanye is just the face, I don’t believe this will be the case – he researches thoroughly and is hands on and committed to his work.

She mentioned he had a unique eye for fashion and his designs were made using the most luxurious fabrics and materials. My girl knows her ish so I’m expecting an amazing line! Hopefully I’ll be able to afford it 🙂

    I agree, he rocks a suit so well. That exact picture was one of my “Looks Of The Day”. I’m excited about his womenswear line too…more curious about the price point. I guess we’ll just have to wait.
