Kanye West Is Using LinkedIn To Hire A Fashion Team

embed
You know those outstanding LinkedIn notifications you've been avoiding for the past six years months? Take note. In the newest addition of "Celebs: They're Just Like Us" Kanye West is now using the online networking site to hire a crew of people for his forthcoming RTW initiative. There was the CFO position, which was posted, but is no longer available (filled, we'd venture to guess?), and still up, the Vice President of Production for someone with at least two years of experience in a director role in men's and women's fashion.

The description reads, "The Kanye West clothing project we haven't announced the actual brand name yet will leverage Mr. West's success in high fashion and hip-hop music to bring accessible style to malls and other outlets across America and around the world. Mr. West will play a hands-on role in leading design efforts, having studied and worked with design houses such as Fendi, Giuseppe Zanotti, Nike and Louis Vuitton." And as for the job itself? The posting says, "The venture will be very high profile and, unlike those in which celebrities merely lend their name to a label, this venture will have the power of Mr. West's creative genius at the heart and soul of it. In this role you will oversee all aspects of production, from pre-production to sourcing to production, building the function from square one. In addition to interacting with Mr. West, you will join a team that has deep experience and track records of success in the industry." Sounds like a Yeezus-esque task, indeed! (LinkedIn)
