Thus week we reported that Kanye West has brought Louise Goldin on board to help with his womenswear debut this September and on Friday Louise Wilson, course director of MA Fashion at CSM, confirmed the reports.
Talking to British Vogue she said:
"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."
Goldin couldn't be more complimentary about the duo while talking to the Guardian too:
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.
