Lately, rumors have been circulating as to whether or not American rapper Kanye West would be releasing his own clothing line.
And according to The Cut, those rumors have just been confirmed by Louise Wilson, MA fashion director at Central Saint Martins in London.
Reportedly, Wilson has confirmed that West is indeed working on releasing his own line of clothing specifically focused on womenswear, this September at New York Fashion week.
According to Wilson, West has been honing his design skills over the past few years, taking up internships at major design houses such as Louis Vuitton, Raf Simmons, and Fendi. At the start of this year, he reportedly hired British designer, Louise Goldin, to aide him in his quest to design his line of womenswear.
In addition, Wilson said to British Vogue about West, “I have known Kanye for about two years. 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…I have not however been working closely with him on a collection but I certainly wish him well.”
Wilson herself said that she anticipates the Kanye-Goldin collection to be “well considered”.
In the meantime, the fashion world will have to wait for September’s New York Fashion Week to see West’s designs.
We’re thinking gold suits and leopard bomber jackets.
