Kanye West Responsible for 40% Increase in Male Fashion Students

Kanye West was forced to start teaching fashion design courses at Los Angeles Trade Technical College last May as part of his community service charges. Since then, the male enrollment in fashion courses at the college has spiked 40%. Rumor has it that Kanye has been assigning special projects and mentorships to select students.

West was sentenced to teach the classes after pleading no contest to assault and battery charges in March of 2014 for a physical altercation with a photographer in LAX. The 37-year-old rap superstar turned champion of the fashion world will finish his court mandated public service at the school at the end of the school year in June of this year.
