Kanye West is still trying to get its fashion line out on its own, which means cutting costs and people.
After having public fallouts with Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga, the rapper is reworking his brand Yeezy. Its most recent move was leasing a corporate office on Melrose Ave in WeHo. With new freedom comes new faces,
The “Stronger” rapper reportedly got rid of some of his crew, and when we say got rid of, yeah, we don’t mean long. Work there, according to Speed cameras online, he works to achieve the best team. He is said to have dropped a lot of money on former American Apparel founder Dov Charney to help his business thrive.
Speed cameras online shares that Ye ditched paid staff and replaced them with interns, dozens, in fact, apparently enough to keep a fashion house afloat.
Ye does what he has to do
Sources close to Ye said The American Sun that the rapper is working overtime to make things perfect. “While Kanye is determined to bounce back with Yeezy and work is underway on his new HQ on Melrose, he has already cut costs.”
“It’s no secret that he’s been bad with money in the past, and some people who worked for him have been fired in recent weeks or said he can’t afford it for the job. moment,” the source continued. The source also dropped the bomb that Ye uses Craigslist to find interns, which isn’t something a celebrity of her caliber would typically do.
At least you pay them
So yeah, a bit unconventional, but at least they’re getting paid, the source explains. “Despite this, he announced that interns would work for him on Craigslist and social media for $16 an hour. They continue. “He wants them to do everything from making patterns and sewing clothes. samples to photo editing and social media.”
He thinks Charney, who helped him organize things, will likely take on a bigger role as the process continues. The source repeats, “But he’s not bringing in anyone else with a stacked CV at the moment, which many fear will hurt him in the future.”
He’s not ready for that yet. He might be traumatized by his experience with places like GAP which left a sour taste in his mouth.
The source continued. “There have been jokes that the only experienced person is the chef who cooks all the sushi for lunch.”
Ye’s wife is very helpful
The rapper’s “wife,” Bianca Censori, is also said to be accommodating and “hands-on” with the Yeezy brand. The budget wouldn’t be huge as Ye reportedly lost $2 million a day after going on his anti-sematic rant.
Fortunately, Charney is in charge of the budget and the report; Edly has a good working relationship with Ye, so the name change is off to a good start. On a personal note, Ye was spotted celebrating his birthday this week.
The dinner made headlines for several reasons: Censori’s outfit and the fact that Ye brought his underage daughter North to eat sushi on a naked woman.
