Fashion world mourns death of designer Virgil Abloh

Designer Virgil Abloh, who founded Off-White and worked for Louis Vuitton, and stars like Kanye West, has passed away after a battle with a rare form of cancer that he chose to go through “privately.”
Abloh's death, at the age of 41, was confirmed by a statement posted to his Instagram account on Sunday. He is survived by his wife Shannon and two children.
Abloh was the CEO of Off-White and was a menswear designer for Louis Vuitton since 2018. Vuitton CEO Bernard Arnault was one of many in the fashion industry to mourn his loss, calling him a “genius” and “a man with a beautiful soul.”
