Tribute to Virgil Abloh

A Conversation with Faye McLeod, Ansel Thompson, and Matthew Yokobosky

Moderated by Claude Grunitzky

Presented on Thursday, November 17, 2022 in FIAF's Le Skyroom

Join LVMH Visual Image Director Faye Mcleod, LVMH Art Director Ansel Thompson, and curator Matthew Yokobosky for a conversation about Virgil Abloh’s influence on the fashion industry and beyond.

Drawing inspiration from music, art, pop culture and design, Abloh collaborated with artists like Jay-Z and Takashi Murakami, and brands like Nike and Mercedes Benz. A champion of streetwear, Abloh integrated a younger, urban style into the world of luxury. One year after his tragic passing, we remember Abloh’s legacy as the iconic founder of Off-White and the Creative Director of Menswear for Louis Vuitton.

Presented in partnership with Institut Français de la Mode, the discussion is moderated by Claude Grunitzky, founder of TRACE magazine and TRUE Africa.
