Kanye West Is Giving Back To Young Designers — & One Is About To Change The Game In Paris

Kanye West’s impact on the world of fashion is about to get a whole lot bigger.West is launching a creative incubator program designed to offer financial assistance and mentorship to up and coming fashion designers, Vogue reports.The first grant recipient is former Yeezy womenswear designer Maisie Schloss. Schloss is from Chicago and a graduate of Parsons School of Design. Her brand, Masie Wilen, is launching at a friends and family showing next week in Los Angeles, with another debut event scheduled in Paris later this month.“My first collection is inspired by rhythmic gymnastics and robotics, specifically studying how elegant fluidity emerges from rigid system,” she told Vogue. “Strongly driven by print, the clothes themselves are playful and fashion-forward but rooted in very wearable shapes.”Schloss’ line will feature an 85-piece resort collection, with items priced between $100 to $950. She says executing her vision would not have been possible without West’s support
