Kanye West is launching his women's fashion line. He's not doing it all by himself, though—with the help from master-designer Louise Goldin, and advice from Central Saint Martins' professor Louis Wilson, West will launch his label during this year's New York Fashion Week.
After making a name for himself in the music world, Kanye West is ready to dominate fashion. The Chicago, Illinois rapper has allegedly made Paris his home in an attempt to launch a career in fashion, with plans to make a line for men and women at a studio in the city’s center.
known for his unique sense of style, has been spotted front row at fashion shows over the past few years, designed for Louis Vuitton, interned at Fendi and most recently launched a collection of scarves. He is apparently eyeing September as the time to unveil his designs for the 2012 spring/summer season.
Wilson told the Guardian, “I think we can expect a well-considered collection, you wouldn’t expect less from a pair of professionals and I warn against dismissing it in haste. There are those who might assume Louise will be doing all the work and Kanye is just the face, I don’t believe this will be the case – he researches thoroughly and is hands on and committed to his work.”
