Rapper Kanye West is planning to launch his first clothing line, specifically womenswear, at the next New York Fashion week slated this Fall.
The 34-year old began working on his own line earlier this year and is said to have hired British talent Louise Goldin, a professor at top London fashion college Central Saint Martins, to help create the womenswear range. Goldin also best known for creating Rihanna's New Year's eve dress.
“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)
