“I believe the world can be saved through design.”
— Kanye West
Kanye repeated this strong statement and sentiment from his talk with Harvard Architecture students in late 2013 in a speech introducing Milk Studios founder Mazdack Rassi as the winner of the inaugural L.A. Fashion Awards “Innovator of the Year” Award.
He noted that this is only the case through unselfish design, addressing the room of fellow fashion creatives and now that the speech is online, an internet of loyal Kanye fans and the countless designers that are such too. Throughout the speech, Kanye shares little anecdotes but is self-conscious of the time… I wish that weren’t an issue. Sounds like Kanye has cool and inspiring stories with designers like a Jeremy Scott for days. Watch above: a very quick and inspiring speech on design.
