Remember early last month when I reported Kanye West was reportedly in Paris designing a S/S 2012 collection!?.. Well graziadaily.co.uk recently shared some more news on the matter turning the rumor that much more into fact, and that we could possibly expect a NYFW runway show featuring Kanye West's S/S 2012 collection!..
We hear rumours, from excellent sources, that the hip hopper has been squirreling away on his New York Fashion Week debut womenswear collection for months now, and has employed some key Brits to help him achieve critical success. With studios in both East London and New York, Kanye has apparently hired knit-wear supremo, Louise Goldin, to oversee design, St Martins MA legend, Louise Wilson, has been giving him one-to-one tuition – which explains his previous declarations that he wanted to study at the prestigious art school - and assumptions are that he has hired a very established stylist to work as a consultant. Plus, judging by his phenomenal music success, Kanye won’t leave anything to chance, so we imagine that there is already a full line-up ready to go. Now, that’s just what other NY designers who are still toiling their first looks need to hear! Mr West, finally, welcome to the industry.
