British Vogue has confirmed reports that Kanye West is working on a womenswear label with designer Louise Goldin. Louise Wilson, a professor at British fashion school Central St. Martins, and former teacher to Goldin, speaks on the project:
“I have known Kanye for about two years,” Wilson, the course director of the MA Fashion at CSM, told us. “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.” (nymag)
We’ll get to see what Mr. West and Goldin came up with during NY Fashion Week.
