Just last July, fashion icon Virgil Abloom had been promoted to a new position within Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH), the world leader in luxury, that would allow him to work across the group’s 75 brands, making him the most powerful Black executive in the most powerful luxury group in the world.

He studied civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received a master’s degree in architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology.

A rare cancer took him out of here earlier today.

One of the great ones!
