Renowned fashion designer, Virgil Abloh is dead. Before his death he was the founder of luxury streetwear brand Off-White and artistic director of men’s wear at Louis Vuitton.

He passed away at the age of 41.

Abloh is said to have been privately dealing with the disease for so many years. However, sadly, he wasn’t able to continue the fight against it.

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has released a statement confirming his death.

“We are all shocked after this terrible news. Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom,” Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH, said in a statement.

“The LVMH family joins me in this moment of great sorrow, and we are all thinking of his loved ones after the passing of their husband, their father, their brother or their friend,” he added.

It was in 2018 that Abloh joined Louis Vuitton.

His first show in June 2018 marked a new chapter in fashion history: the moment when streetwear crashed the hallowed halls of luxury brands.

In September 2019, the designer said he was taking a break from work on doctor’s orders. He never specified the nature of his illness.
