Kanye West may be going to fashion school

on Monday,March 07,2011 20:03


While the veracity of the matter is up for debate, The Sun recently reported that Kanye West took a trip to London to visit with professor Louise Wilson, the head of the fashion design course at the Central Saints Martins College, and has applied to the school.

Wilson is known in the fashion world for her keen eye and straightforward approach. She has said that West won't be given a free pass to the college simply because of his fame, but he may have some credentials. He has worked with both Fendi and Louis Vuitton.

"Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central's arty pupils when he is in London," one source told the news provider.

The college's design program has hosted other musical talents before, including members of the Clash and the Sex Pistols. Famous fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney have also attended the school.

However, a spokesperson for Central Saints Martins College said that the hip-hop artist never actually applied. "He visited the college last week on unrelated matters," she told MTV News.
