Kanye West teaches classes in fashion for community service

Yeezy is tutoring students at Rick Owens's alma mater, LA Trade-Tech College

Kanye West might not think the fashion industry takes him seriously, but that hasn't stopped him playing fashion professor at the LA community college that nurtured Rick Owens's talents.

Yeezy has been teaching fashion students at the LA Trade-Tech College (LATTC) since May as part of his community service. He was ordered to complete 250 hours as well as attend anger management classes after he assaulted paparazzi photographer Daniel Ramos last July. 

Judging by the photos on the @teamkanyedaily Instagram account, LATTC's newest tutor is capably holding fort at the front of the class. Who knows – Kanye might even be inspiring the new Rick Owens. The Californian designer studied pattern-making and draping at the school before founding his own label in 1994. 

This isn't the first time Kanye has contributed his skills to higher education. Last November, he visited Harvard Graduate School of Design with creative director Virgil Abloh to check out some student work and speak to the budding architects.

For a taste of Professor West, check out the speech he gave at Harvard:
