With the entire fashion world watching, Virgil Abloh unveiled his debut collection for Louis Vuitton at this year’s Paris Fashion week. This was a watershed moment for a number of reasons. The most memorable moment of the show came at the very end when Abloh walked off the runaway, spotted Kanye West and embraced for an emotional hug.
During the interview with model and contributing editor for British Vogue, Naomi Campbell, Abloh shared “Kanye was the guy when it was completely unpopular that said, ‘I am not to be typecast into a box,’ like, he willed it for us. Going back, he was like, ‘We’re going to Fashion Week,’ this place where we can’t get in. That dream is his just as much as it’s mine. In my dream, it was him down the runway.” This was a huge win for both of them.
