Some sad news to report from the weekend as popular fashion designer Virgil Abloh has died at the age of 41 after a private battle with cancer. The designer rose to prominence as Kanye West’s creative director but later made history as the first African-American to lead Louis Vuitton. In 2013 he founded his own label, Off-White, which became a huge success among youth. He was also a DJ and music video director with close relationships with the likes of Drake, Pop Smoke and more. Rest in peace to an icon.
