Kanye West Launches Fashion Incubator
Passing the torch to the next generation. You might be next.
News 10 Jun 2019

Kanye West is not just a musician, an artist, fashion designer and husband to the most famous woman on the planet (I mean, Kim Kardashian doesn’t really need an introduction does she!?) He is also a father, activist and pop culture icon. And now, he has decided it is the right time to add to his list of projects by founding a fashion incubator.

West’s initiative will provide financial assistance and mentorship to a new generation of creatives. The incubator program’s first recipient is former YEEZY womenswear designer Maisie Schloss who, like West, grew up in Chicago. Throughout the program, Schloss will be aided by West as she works on launching her debut clothing line Masie Wilen. The collection will be debuted in Los Angeles this month before being presented in Paris, with prices predicted to range from between $100 and $900 USD.

And, it’s good to point out that West was in fact an intern once himself, having learnt the ropes with Fendi and Virgil Abloh before making it big. So it makes sense that this new incubator programme will help him to pass on his knowledge to the next generation.
