London: Rapper Kanye West has apparently applied to study fashion at the Central Saint Martins College in London.

He flew London to meet the head of the course, Louise Wilson.
Wilson’s previous students include the late Alexander McQueen, who was idolised by fashion-obsessed Kanye.
“Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central’s arty pupils when he is in London,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
"The rapper already has work experience with Fendi and Louis Vuitton on his CV.
"Now that he has been interviewed the school’s board will have to decide whether to allow him to start the MA fashion course later this year," said the source.
“It is a big decision because it would get CSM publicity - but it may also damage the school’s credibility. There are already rumours flying around among current students.

The source added: "They are saying he has been turned down for a place because his portfolio wasn’t up to standard."
