Virgil Abloh!

Virgil, Virgil, Virgil - November 28, 2021 we lost a giant and his name is Virgil Abloh. Virgil passed on at the mere 41 years of age. Virgil has impacted my life in so many ways that I can not select just one moment. When I ask myself, honestly how did he impact you? Virgil was creative head of LV and his own amazing brand Off-White and I had not yet materialized my plan to work with him. Then one thing comes to mind. I did seize an opportunity to hear him discuss the fusion of fashion, art, culture and sustainability on Clubhouse one night and I could not believe my ears. Who would have thought that in such a short time Clubhouse would bridge the divide between the everyday people and industry leaders. For this I am thankful! Virgil’s talent, conceptual skills, ability to birth a vision, cross branding, cross industry vertical integration and humility surpasses any other accomplished designer of this era. Merci Virgil for being you. You will live on in many of us as we look to your b
