*As previously reported, Kanye West is working on a womenswear fashion label with British designer Louise Goldin.
British fashion school professor Louise Wilson, who taught Goldin and worked with the duo, confirmed Kanye’s new fashion line, but said she will not be working with them this time around.
“I have known Kanye for about two years,” Wilson, the course director of the MA Fashion at CSM, told us. “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. He has supported the fashion school (with its fundraising regarding its move to Kings Cross) with a donation. I have not however been working closely with him on a collection but I certainly wish him well.”
She added that the collaboration is sure to be a hit.
“I think we can expect a well-considered collection, you wouldn’t expect less from a pair of professionals and I warn against dismissin g 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.”
