Kanye West to rap his way into NY fashion Week?
RnB artist, Kanye West is all set to launch his own fashion line for women! The Gold Digga rapper was recently seen at Central Saint Martin’s Campus, spurring rumors that he’s enrolling as a student but now we know why! He was there to rope in Louise Wilson, faculty at Central St Martins’ as an advisor to oversee the collection.
Previously, he had collaborated with Nike and Louis Vuitton to create a collection of shoes and at one point, even interned at Gap! The gossip mills say he’s planning on reeling in Kate Moss as the face of his line and is all set to launch the collection at the forthcoming New York Fashion week.
Well let’s just hope his designs are not as heavily inspired and remixed as his adaptation of Daft Punk’s ‘Harder Better Faster Stronger’.

Topshop to pick up Galliano for a new line!
It seems like everybody’s favorite whipping boy of the season, Dior’s ex Creative head, John Galliano is all set to get a second chance in the fashion industry. Well, we all expected, it but not THIS soon!
Apparently TOPSHOP wants him to design a line exclusively for them- Now whether that’s called a show of solidarity or just an enterprising business proposition, only Sir Philip Green will be able to tell. He’ll just have to wait until September 8, when the verdict on Galliano’s anti Semitic rant is slated to be out.
The devil wins a Booker?
Rumor has it that Anna Wintour, the all too famous editor of Vogue for the past 23 years, is going to pen an autobiography. Considering the fact that the novel and the movie, “The devil wears Prada” are loosely based on her real life demanding and overbearing personality, we think we know enough about her already.
Having said that, I’m kinda curious about one of the world’s most successful fashion editors – her wardrobe, her parties, her sidekicks… I’ll admit, I’m secretly looking forward to it!
