The posting for CFO trumpets “a fascinating and unique opportunity to take ownership of the financial and accounting functions for a brand new clothing line designed by creative genius and celebrity powerhouse, Kanye West.” There’s no name for the label as yet. West is among celebrities who are making the rounds at New York Fashion Week, and he has shown a couple of collections in Paris in past seasons (to lukewarm reviews ).
