The College Dropout Going Back to School?
Mar 07, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Kanye West is taking the next logical, Louis Vuitton-loafered step in his ardor for couture by applying for a Master's degree in fashion at London's prestigious Central Saint Martins College.

Ye reportedly met with the head of the course, Professor Louise Wilson, to discuss his future matriculation before jetting off to Paris to hang with Anna Dello Russo and take in the shows at Fashion Week.
A source tells The Sun:
"Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central's arty pupils when he is in London. The rapper already has work experience with Fendi and Louis Vuitton on his CV. Now that he has been interviewed the school's board will have to decide whether to allow him to start the MA fashion course later this year."
West's few high-profile internships may not be enough to sway the notoriously intractable Wilson, as rumors abound hat "he has been turned down for a place because his portfolio wasn't up to standard."
If Kanye does make it through the program, however, he will join CSM's list of luminary alumni, which includes designers Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Gareth Pugh, Christopher Kane, Zac Posen, Matthew Williamson and Hussein Chalayan.
Let's just hope he was taking notes while sitting front row so he can get that portfolio up to snuff.
