Who is Virgil Abloh?

Virgil Abloh is one of the most popular designers today. He is an architect and creative director for Kanye West. He is the founder of Off-White and Pyrex Vision and a DJ. Abloh is someone kids today want to be like when they grow up.

 

Abloh is responsible for Kanye West’s projects. When he is not working with the rap superstar, he collaborates with musician friends like Theophilus London and Sky Ferreira. It was in 2014 when he launched Off-White, which is a clothing label that offers full collections of women and men’s streetwear. Whenever someone mentions Abloh’s name, one can’t help but think of Off-White as well. A year after he launched the label, it was nominated for the LVMH Prize. The label won the Best Urban Luxe Brand at the London’s Fashion Awards in 2017. He also founded Pyrex Vision, which is an art re-appropriation project that prints designs on pre-existing garments. 

 

Abloh’s Design Team

 

Virgil Abloh said that his design team is composed of himself alone. He looks at Instagram the whole day and travels. He is confident to say that he brings something new to the table with his streetwear collections. He travels all over the world to find the latest trends in different markets.

 

He doesn’t have a desk. Instead, he works in cars, on planes, and on the street. He is always on his phone. He might be 37 years old, but he is a millennial in mind and heart. That’s why it is not a surprise Off-White has become an Instagram success story. The label has around 2.7 million followers, and most of them are die-hard fans of the clothing line.
