We are sad to report the death of one of the biggest names in fashion, Virgil Abloh. The news was suddenly announced in a post on Virgil’s Instagram account.
While Virgil was still actively working on his business endeavors on November 5, when he spoke publicly at the National Museum of Qatar, his team announced that he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called cardiac angiosarcoma as early as 2019. Unfortunately, Virgil lost the battle on Sunday.
“We are devastated to announce the death of our beloved Virgil Abloh, a devoted father, husband, son, brother and friend,” the announcement reads. “For two years Virgil fought valiantly against a rare, aggressive type of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma. He has chosen to endure his struggle privately since his diagnosis in 2019 and undergo numerous challenging treatments while running several major institutions that span fashion, art and culture. “
LVMH, Louis Vuitton and Off White released a statement about Virgil Abloh who was LV Fashion Director and CEO of Off-White.
“We are all shocked after this terrible news. Virgil was not only a brilliant designer, a visionary, he was also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom, ”the statement said. “The LVMH family joins me at this moment of great sadness and we all think of loved ones after the death of their husband, father, brother or boyfriend.”
Virgil will be remembered for the mark he made in the fashion industry and the bold statement pieces he made for some of the biggest stars.
Please keep Virgil’s family and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, roommates.
