London: Kanye West finally seems to have realized that he knows squat about fashion – the rapper is set to study fashion at the Central Saint Martins College in London.

West has applied to study for a Masters degree in fashion but his application hasn’t been accepted yet.

He flew into London on Wednesday to meet the head of the course, Professor Louise Wilson, who has guided the careers of many of Britain’s top designers for the past 20 years.

She has a fearsome reputation in the industry and has even been labelled a "style dictator,” reports a daily.

"Kanye spends a lot of time with fashion students and often hooks up with Central`s arty pupils when he is in London.

"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."

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