Kanye West is no stranger to the fashion world, that’s why as part of his court ordered community service he has been teaching classes at Rick Owens‘ alma mater, LA Trade-Tech College since May. He is required by the state to preform 250 hours of community service as well as attend anger management classes after he assaulted paparazzo, Daniel Ramos last July. And lets be honest- we would all love to see Kanye be humbled.
But hey, only an ego like his is not going to let a few failed fashion lines stop him from playing professor to the younger generation of Rick Owens hopefuls (but in Kanye’s defense he has had great success with his sneaker collaborations).
It is good to see him embracing the sentence with his typical passion and gusto and sharing his insight into the fashion world- but with his recent choices in style though, we can only imagine what is going on in that classroom… Maybe he is leading by example on what not to wear?… Or maybe we are just not getting it and should attend one of his classes ourselves. Just take a look what he wore last night front row at Lanvin as part of Paris Fashion Week.
Who knows though, maybe he will inspire the next big name… We have our fingers crossed!
