Virgil Abloh: A life’s work

Fashion editor Kaycia Ainsworth pays tribute to designer Virgil Abloh.


On Sunday the 28th November it was announced that creative visionary and fashion messiah Virgil Abloh had passed away at the frightfully young age of 41. Virgil was an insanely dedicated designer who continued to create tirelessly as he privately battled the cancer that would eventually take his life. He was a multidisciplinary artist whose work changed the course of fashion and streetwear forever. His incredible talent and ceaseless momentum has been pivotal in building the future of fashion and art; anything it didn't change it touched, and in turn, influenced.
