This announcement was made on Friday by Kanye and later on revealed by Mowalola through her Instagram, stating she is set to take on the role of design director for the project.
Mowalola has dressed style icons like Solange Knowles and is most famously responsible for Naomi Campbell’s white halterneck gown, which featured a symbolic gunshot wound, that she wore this past London Fashion Week.
