Though wildly hyped and nearly universally panned — but at least his homegirl Anna Dello Russo had his back — Kanye West‘s fashion line, Dw, is still alive and kicking. Not only does it have a Twitter account, a prerequisite for anyone’s official existence, but now rumor has it the Louis Vuitton Don is moving his design studio to London to be closer to the comforting glow of Central Saint Martins.?
If memory serves, Kanye had adopted CSM professor Louise Wilson as his mentor? and even utilized students as interns. Undaunted by the (dis)likes of Anna Wintour, West plans to stick with the Brits and will reportedly show again in Paris come Fashion Week. Kudos to you, Kanye, for putting your enormous ego aside and not letting reason or common sense get in the way of your fashion dreams. Take notes, kids. This is how you buck convention. And Ye is bucking shit up. [Vogue UK]
