Virgil Abloh Makes History at Louis Vuitton
Virgil Abloh has taken over Louis Vuitton.
This collection has been anticipated by many as over 1,000 people join the audience for history to be made. Rihanna, Kanye, Rita Ora, ASAP Rocky, and more were seated to experience the new collection in person. A pivotal moment in his career as he is a black man in the fashion world paving a new lane for designers and other people of color.
The emotional moment for Virgil Abloh, creator of the brand Off White, had said, “Look around this room, there are people around this room who look like me, you never saw that before in fashion. The people have changed and so fashion had to.”
Louis Vuitton has featured a wide variety of diverse models, even showcasing some famous musicians such as Kid Cudi and Playboi Carti.
Abloh was pictured crying after his show had finished. This fashion show was more than a fashion show. For the first time, people of color are changing the game and being praised for it rather than being discriminated or called ghetto for threads. Fashion is changing and there is no room for exclusion.
