It’s official! The King of Controversy, the Prince of Pop-Culture himself, Kanye West has confirmed that he will be debuting a new women’s wear collection at the upcoming Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. With a little (well, maybe a lot) of help from designer Louise Goldin and Central Saint Martins professor Louis Wilson, West’s label, if anything, is bound to turn heads. “I’ve known him for two years now and he’s incredibly knowledgeable about fashion…” said Wilson in a statement. “I think we can expect a well-considered collection.”


Famously kicked out of a Balenciaga show, and quite the fashion diva, Kanye West’s label could be his last chance to truly break into the fashion world he admires so greatly. One thing’s for sure; the front-row at September’s show is bound to be packed with A-List celebs, the likes of which NYFW has never seen before.
