History was made at Paris Fashion Week! Virgil Abloh presented his first menswear collection for Louis Vuitton on Thursday. This marks the first African-American artistic director of a top French heritage house to do so.
At the close of the show, Abloh ran to Kanye who was in attedance and gave him a WARM, SINCERE hug. It appeared that the two were in TEARS!
Abloh and West’s friendship started in the early 2000s. Both from Chicago, they interned together at Fendi in 2009. Following their internship, West appointed Abloh creative director of his DONDA agency.
