Celebrities Pay Tribute to Virgil Abloh

On Sunday, the fashion world was shaken by the unexpected death of Virgil Abloh, all the Celebrities from Showbiz industries Pay Tribute to hime.  The Virgil Abloh was the founder of premium streetwear brand Off-White and artistic director of men’s wear at Louis Vuitton, at the age of 41, following a private two-year struggle with illness.

Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton, issued a statement on Abloh’s death, saying, “We are all horrified following this dreadful news.” Virgil was not just a brilliant designer and visionary, but he was also a man with a lovely spirit and enormous knowledge.”

Celebrities like Pharrell Williams, Hailey Bieber, Cynthia Erivo, Drake, and others have offered heartfelt condolences to Abloh on Instagram, discussing their connections with the late designer and his effect on fashion and society.

Williams captioned a photo of Abloh, “My heart is torn.” Virgil, you were a generous, considerate, and compassionate creative genius. Your effort as a person and as a spiritual entity will continue on in perpetuity. I’m sending you love and light for your wife, children, family, and loved ones. Shine, you’re now with the Master.

Bieber, who married Justin Bieber in a bespoke Off-White wedding gown made by Abloh in 2019, released a selfie of herself in the gown with Abloh.

“Virgil absolutely transformed the way I looked at street style and fashion, and the way he looked at things greatly influenced me,” she wrote. “I will never be able to adequately convey how glad I am to have met him and worked with him; from walking on his runways to having him create my wedding gown and all the other great moments in between, I always felt he was cheering for me.” He was the type of person that always brought life, charm, love, and excitement to every scenario or space he entered. A once-in-a-generation creative mind is extremely uncommon, and I will never forget his influence. “Virgil, we adore you.”

Amanda Gorman, the Youth Poet Laureate, uploaded a photo on Instagram about an unique outfit the designer designed for her that was inspired by his grandmother.

“What a tragedy – Virgil, your skill and spirit will be much missed,” she wrote. “I consider myself extremely fortunate to have met you and to have worn such a wonderful garment made by you in honour of your grandma.” I realised then that I was wearing the work of a designer whose work spans both the past and the present. To paraphrase you, “let us paint new pictures where the old ones have been wiped.”
