Virgil Abloh, Famous Streetwear to Runways Designer is No More

    Virgil Abloh, fashion’s most well-known streetwear to runway fashion designer and the man behind some of the most well-known men’s Louis Vuitton collections, died on Sunday at the age of 41.

    According to a post on his official Instagram profile, the 41-year-old, who was the creative director for Louis Vuitton menswear and the founder of the label Off-White, had “a rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma.” Perhaps Virgil Abloh‘s biggest achievement is the way he took streetwear to the runways. He is widely considered as a forefather of high-end streetwear.

    Virgil Abloh had been battling cancer secretly for years, according to the French luxury goods conglomerate.

    Abloh was also the designer behind the cult-favorite Off-white label, in which LVMH purchased a 60% interest.

    Graffiti art, hip hop, and skateboarding culture were all influences on his style, which allowed for a blend of streetwear and high-end fashion.

    LVMH increased his role with the firm in July, giving him the authority to establish new brands and cooperate with existing ones in a number of industries other than fashion.

    Since March 2018, the American fashion designer, who also works as a DJ and a visual artist, had been with Louis Vuitton.
