Kanye West Plans To Intern In The Fashion World
Looks like Kanye is following through on these plans.
According to the New York Times, Mr. West has his sights on joining the likes of Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons, with an internship as his starting point. As odd as it would be to see a multi-platinum artist begin another career from the bottom, it was equally astounding when West contacted Simons himself.

In disbelief, Simons continued, I know hes very serious about this I dont take it as a joke but how can I imagine him being my intern? Its a very extreme situation. Simons, who has gained notoriety as one of fashions current leading innovators, draws his inspiration significantly from youth culture.
While he awaits an answer, 'Ye still has other ventures to keep him busy including his own Pastelle line, which is three years in the making and counting.
