Kanye and His Line Get Glowing Recommendation From Fashion Professor

We still can't picture Kanye's collection either, but his professor says it's in good hands.

What in the world does Kanye West have up his sleeve for this fashion collaboration with award winning British designer Louise Goldin? Reports say that it's a ready to wear women's line that will debut during New York Fashion Week in September, but besides that no one seems to have any idea what it'll actually looks like. We're almost nervous for what 'Ye will cook up for the ladies, but whatever he's doing, he's made quite the impresson on a fashion professor who thinks he's well on his way to producing some great designs. 

Professor Louise Wilson, the director of the MA in fashion courses at Central Saint Martins once mentored Goldin and has confirmed she discussed plans for a new line with West. “I've known [Kanye] for two years now and he's incredibly knowledgeable about fashion, he's a global phenomenon and a very interesting person. 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," she told The Guardian.

The professor also noted, “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.”
