Though Kanye West got his fame with “The College Dropout”, our fashionable Yeezy is taking the steps to re-enroll. Because there is no place held in higher sartorial regard, he has applied to obtain a Masters degree in fashion at Central Saint Martins in London. Though he has yet to be accepted, Kanye flew into London last Wednesday to meet the head of the course, “style dictator” Professor Louise Wilson. Yes, the same Louise that mentored Alexander McQueen.
A source said: “Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central’s arty pupils when he is in London. The rapper already has work experience with Fendi and Louis Vuitton on his CV. Now that he has been interviewed the school’s board will have to decide whether to allow him to start the MA fashion course later this year.”
With the balance between it’s credibility and pretension in the air, this could usher in big things for CSM.
