Hey Teacher West! Kanye talks to students at LA fashion school as part of community service program stemming from photographer lawsuit. Kanye West has put his experience as a fashion designer to good use. The 37-year-old entrepreneur has been speaking to various fashion schools to chip away at his staggering 250 hours of community service doled out to him in plea deal from his lawsuit related to a scuffle with photographer Daniel Ramos in 2013.
The husband of Kim Kardashian has already put in three sessions in the past six weeks at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College, according to TMZ. In a photo posted Monday, the Stronger singer is seen posing for with two people from the design school.
Wearing an ordinary white T-shirt with a gold chain, West looked far from couture friendly. But he seemed to be in good spirits as he cracked a slight smile.
The Yeezus singer was speaking with students 'about his personal experiences in the fashion business' at the public community college, according to the site.
Mr West launched his design label in 2012 and had a fashion show in Paris that same year.
Kim has shown off several of his creations, such as his white shoes for Giuseppe Zannoti which were priced around $6,000.
She also appeared at his 2012 show during Paris Fashion Week.
The LATTC specializes in designing apparel.
On Monday West spoke for three hours about various designers. Givenchy, who created his tuxedo along with Kim's white lace wedding dress for his May nuptials in Florence, Italy, was no doubt discussed.
In March West cut a plea deal in the Ramos case after pleading no contest. He promised to serve 250 hours of community service in exchange for jail time. He will also be on 24 months of 'informal probation.'
He is required to complete 24 sessions of a level-two anger management program.
