It’s no secret that Kanye West is passionate about fashion. And he’s hoping to get his fiancée Kim Kardashian just as invested in the world of haute couture—by transforming her into the next Coco Chanel!
According to a new report, the rapper has been encouraging his fiancée to become formally educated on the world of couture by secretly immersing herself in the world of ultra-high fashion “at Kanye’s behest.”
“Kanye truly believes Kim can become the next Coco Chanel if she puts her mind to it,” the source tells Radar.

The 36-year-old allegedly wants to transform North’s mom into “the most fashionable celebrity in the world” and has her meeting with top minds in fashion to make it happen.
“Kim began her education with extensive sit-downs with the design brain trust at Rodante, because she wants to evolve to the next level of classiness and taste and luxury,” the source explains.
“Kanye wants her to focus on becoming a true luxury brand that defines a generation, like famed French fashion designer Coco Chanel—that’s who she is trying to become and that’s who Kanye wants her to become.”
Some may say the changes in Kim’s image have already taken effect. While she was once known in the fashion realm for the Kardashian Kollection—a mass market line with Sears—she has since established herself in the world of luxury fashion, thanks in part to her friendship with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci and her Vogue cover.
