The Sun newspaper has reported that Kanye West has applied to London’s Central Saint Martins College to obtain a masters degree in fashion. Last week he reportedly went to London for a meeting with the college professor Louise Wilson.
What? Wasn’t this the man who made a whole album sending up those who go to college?
Yeezy has made no secret of his desire to pursue his interest in fashion, once declaring that he wanted to intern for Louis Vuitton, and is often seen front row at fashion week shows across the globe. He worked for over a year on his Pastelle range, postponing shows and recording commitments for the label, only for it to never see the light of day, reportedly because of his perfectionist tendencies, and the fact that he was never satisfied with the collection.
However, Kanye’s Louis Vuitton sneakers and his range of Air Yeezy’s are hot, so we can’t deny that the man has style. Let’s hope they agree to admit him, so hopefully we can actually see his collection this time!
Stella McCartney, MIA and the late Alexander McQueen are all college alumni, so if the admissions board to decide to allow Kanye to join their ranks, he will be in very good company. But I can’t help wondering what it may mean for any future Kanye albums?
