Kanye West is always on the forefront of fashion and this time around he is launching a fashion incubator that is set to foster new creatives and talent in the industry.
This is great news as the Kanye West incubator program would not just provide mentorship to aspiring creatives in fashion, design and more, but will also provide financial assistance.
This is just another new fashion venture for the hip-hop superstar who has made it clear that he also belongs in the fashion world. In 2015, he partnered with Adidas to launch the first season of Yeezy. Previously he partnered with Louis Vuitton, A Bathing Ape, Nike and A.P.C. Kanye has a long-standing tie with the creative director of Off-White Virgil Abloh, who once served as his creative advisor and partner at a point in time.
Already, the program for emerging designers has a recipient, a Chicago born graduate of Parsons and once a member of the Yeezy womenswear design team by the name of Maisie Schloss. Maisie is preparing to launch her full resort collection in Los Angeles from her debut clothing line Masie Wilen. Later in the month, the designer in a separate debut ceremony would showcase her collection in Paris.
