In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, the Yeezus rapper, Kanye West got emotional and broke down crying.
When Zane Lowe asked the rapper about what he learnt about the fashion industry and the barriers he faced, Kanye said
“I’m trying to express that I can create outside this music box and I’m giving examples of work that I did that are completely successful but I’m just getting shot down,”
Zane also asked Kanye West about his relationship with the fashion professor Louise Wilson who was also the director of the MA fashion degree at Central Saint Martins.
Kanye said “I went to Louise Wilson’s memorial, the greatest fashion instructor of all time. Louise Wilson was the baddest professor of all time of any fashion school ever. Notorious for not letting people stop at a seven or an eight, pushing people to a 12.
Last time I saw her, we had a dinner at Hakkasan which is my favourite restaurant in London and I think she knew that she was going to pass. She just wanted to give me some words of advice moving forward and she was asking me about my daughter, about my wife. ”
According to Kanye, Louise said “so many students, they don’t give it their all. The problem is, soon as they do anything halfway good, when they’re two years old, their parents clap. She looked at me and said, ‘Kanye, don’t clap’.” I didn’t know we were going to lose her, Kanye added.
“She said ‘thank you for the times where we came to performances, this really meant a lot to me’. You know, she would.”
