Central Saint Martins‘ masters program is arguably the most prestigious fashion course in the world. So Kanye West, rapper and fashion obsessive, has reportedly pulled a James Franco and applied. The UK’s Sun says that West flew into London last week to meet with the head of the program, Louise Wilson.
The professor is known for being extremely tough–and schooling the best of the best, from Alexander McQueen to Gareth Pugh–so it’ll be interesting to see if she and the board give West the green light. Sure, she’d garner publicity from his attendance, but does CSM really need more publicity? It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out.
