Kanye West Presents Maisie Schloss, Designer of Maisie Wilen
Kanye West’s fashion incubator is an initiative that hopes to support aspiring talent in fashion and design, aid marginalized designers, and raise the new generation of creatives.
This grant’s first recipient is young designer Maisie Schloss. She is a Chicago native, Parson’s graduate, and former womenswear designer for YEEZY. Through this grant, West will support Schloss in launching Maisie Wilen, her debut clothing line. This contemporary women’s fashion label will be released on www.maisiewilen.com, after its intimate presentation debut in Los Angeles at Night Gallery on June 5th, as well as in Paris later this month. This line will showcase a large resort collection with 85 items ranging from $100-$950.
Schloss tells Vogue, “My first collection is inspired by rhythmic gymnastics and robotics. Strongly driven by print, the clothes themselves are playful and fashion-forward but rooted in very wearable shapes.”
