Â Elle UK has confirmed that Rapper and Fashionisto, Kanye West, is indeed designing a ready-to-wear line to be launch at New York Fashion Week. As a confessed wearer of womenâ€™s clothing, and an obvious culprit to truly not caring what people think, I believe Kanyeâ€™s label has the potential to be an obsession of mine. He got talent, ambition, and RESOURCES. Working closely with Louise Wilson, a renowned instructor at Central Saint Martins, (named number one design school in the world by Fashionista.com with alums including ALEXANDER MQUEEN DUH) as well as British knitwear designer Louise Goldin, Kanye is in great hands. Um knitwear?!! I am so excited to see the line! Thereâ€™s a lot of hype, but I personally think Kanye can handle the pressure.Â
Elle UK spoke with Louise Wilson. â€œâ€˜I can confirm that Kanye has been to visit me twice at Saint Martins and we have briefly discussed this collaboration,â€™ Wilson said. â€˜His visit was in part to employ interns for his label, and itâ€™s important to mention that heâ€™s supported our fashion school and made an immediate donation to Saint Martins, which perhaps further demonstrates his passion for the industry. I’ve known him for two years now and he’s incredibly knowledgeable about fashion, he’s a global phenomenon and a very interesting person. 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 [Goldin] will be doing all the work and Kanye is just the face, I don’t believe this will be the caseâ€”he researches thoroughly and is hands on and committed to his work.â€™
