Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, & Kid Cudi Honor Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton Show

Two days after his shocking death, Virgil Abloh’s friends from music and fashion came together to honor him at Louis Vuitton’s “Virgil Was Here” show in Miami on Tuesday.

Kid Cudi, Quavo, and Offset walked the runway alongside models, wearing the boundary-breaking designer’s Spring-Summer 2022 collection. A three-story statue of Virgil, with his Louis Vuitton portfolio in hand, greeted guests during the event, which took place during Art Basel.

Kanye West was seated in the front row alongside Kim Kardashian and their daughter North, while Pharrell, Gunna, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, DJ Khaled, Bella Hadid, and more were also in attendance.

The emotional show ended with the Louis Vuitton design team taking the stage to a standing ovation, some of them in tears.

An inspirational quote from Virgil played in the final moments. “There’s no limit. Life is so short that you can’t waste even a day subscribing to what someone thinks you can do versus knowing what you can do,” he said as fireworks exploded over the skyline.

The Louis Vuitton men’s creative director and Off-White founder passed away Sunday after a two-year battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare cancer. He was 41.

Beyoncé, Drake, Frank Ocean, Tyler, the Creator, Cardi B, and Kim Kardashian were among those who shared touching tributes, while Kanye dedicated Sunday Service to the DONDA creative director.
