Kanye attends Vivienne Westwood's show in Paris

It seems Paris Fashion Week has made a certain rap star’s ambition to be a fashion designer that much stronger.

With his latest album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy being his latest success, Kanye West has announced he is to become a fashion student at London’s Central Saint Martins College.

Kanye has been spotted around the city of Paris joining the list of many other celebrities attending shows and after parties for the annual event.

His latest plan of action to further his qualifications for a fashion career and gain an MA degree is set to kick start very soon as his application is being looked into as we speak.

Back in October we reported on Mr West’s projects with Louis Vuitton and his completing internships with the likes of Gap and Fendi, so with this degree now being added to his CV, he’s certainly showing he’s no stranger to hard work and drive.

Update: It has been reported that after the rumours about Kayne West announcing he is to become a fashion student, sources from the UK newspaper, The Sun have said that Kayne will not be attending the fashion college.  The reason being is that West does have some work experience at Fendi and Louis Vuitton, but even that wouldn’t be enough for him to secure a place in the master’s program.

What do you think?  Do you think Kayne even needs a qualification to make him a fashion designer or can he do this with the contacts he has made in the fashion world?  Leave your comments below…
