Virgil Abloh was arm in arm with Bella Hadid, who was in a hot pink coatdress of his design, at this year’s CFDA Awards, where he was nominated in the emerging Designer category. Not bad for a guy who put on his first runway show for Off-White less than two years ago, but then, Abloh is no fashion industry arriviste. Prior to his runway debut, he worked alongside Kanye West for years, and he shares his mentor’s unbridled sense of ambition. There’s no stopping Abloh. He’s collaborated with Levi’s, and has a project with Ikea in the works; the artist Jenny Holzer made a video installation for his recent Pitti Uomo show; and, if you believe his Instagram, it won’t be long before he lands a major design gig.
