Virgil Abloh Skips Fashion Week Due to Health Issues

Virgil Abloh will miss his Off-White show during Paris Fashion Week due to health concerns.  

The designer revealed to Vogue that he has been having a harder time bouncing back after taking trips overseas.

“I was just tired, so I went to the doctor. Ultimately, everything is fine, but the doctor told me ‘this pace that you’ve sort of pushed your body to fly all these miles, do all these different projects is not good for your health’”, stated Abloh.

He has been working from home and has canceled several of his previously planned appearances. 

“Virgil is designing the Off-White show in Paris to replace his attendance, with a creative new approach that will include crowd participation. He continues to work closely with his teams at Louis Vuitton Men’s and Off- White as well as with brands he collaborates with around the world”, stated a spokesperson for Abloh.
