WORDS BY FAITH LEMASTERS

Virgil Abloh’s death was a great loss felt throughout the fashion industry. Not only was Abloh one of the most phenomenally talented designers and creative directors of our time; he was a philanthropist dedicated to making the world a better place (particularly through education). 

In 2020, Abloh founded the Virgil Abloh™ “Post Modern” Scholarship Fund. This fund seeks to create inclusion and equity within the fashion industry and provides scholarships to Black students. In addition to receiving financial scholarship, the fund provides access to various mentorships and career guidance. When speaking about the creation of the fund, Abloh cited his passion for ensuring that students have access to important resources (such as finances and mentorship), so that they may go on to have successful careers.

So while Abloh will, without question, be kept in remembrance for his amazing work with Louis Vuitton and his own brand, Off-White, there is more to his legacy. His dreams and desires for a more inclusive and equitable future will be carried on through those who share his vision, and through the students who are granted greater opportunities through his educational fund.
