Rap star Kanye West has made no secret of his love of fashion. Always perfectly turned out and a regular on the fashion week front row - he's currently in Paris taking in everything from Lanvin to Sonia Rykiel - his love of clothes is a serious rival to his love of music. But, if the latest rumours are to be believed, he's taking it one step further and trying to become a fashion student.
According to The Sun, Kanye West flew into London last week for a meeting with Professor Louise Wilson, the legendary head of the MA fashion course at Central Saint Martins. Apparently Mr West is prepared to take a break from his music career and head back to school, and now he's waiting to find out whether he's been awarded a place. But CSM is one of the toughest schools around to get into, and they won't be allocating him a much-coveted spot on the course unless he's up to scratch - and whispers suggest that, while his CV has some impressive stints doing work experience at Fendi and Louis Vuitton, his portfolio may not hit the mark.
Kanye himself hasn't made any comment about the story, so we can only keep our fingers crossed and hope it's true.More
