Kanye West told the press that he was planning on taking time off from his music career to pursue a fashion internship. It is very well known that Kanye West is the self proclaimed “Louis Vuitton Don.” He is hoping to intern at his most idled fashion label, Louis Vuitton. He also mention possibly interning for a good friend of his, Belgian designer, Raf Simon.
“I wanna make music and I like to perform. I like that, but I really like to design.” Mr. West stated to the Associated Press in November. He went on to say, “I’m going to take an internship with something and just do something that’s like completely normal, and just rap on the weekends or something.”
This would not be West’s first venture in the world of fashion. Kanye and fellow artist Takashi Murakami, together, have been working on a jewelry collection. West has also been working on his mens shoes line for Louis Vuitton, in addition to his very own clothing line titled, Past Tell, which is set to debut in stores sometime next year.
