Virgil Abloh Net Worth: How Rich Is Off-White CEO?
Virgin Abloh is a famous American fashion designer, DJ, and stylist. He is most famous for being the former creative director of Donda- music mogul Kanye West’s agency.

In addition to owning an apparel label, his other achievements in the world of fashion include being appointed as the artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton in 2018 and a designer furniture collection with IKEA.
Virgil Abloh’s Career And Success At Off-White

Then, the fashion designer launched his first label named Pyrex Vision in 2012. His label took an unusual approach to earn money; they screen printed logos, slogans, and graphics onto deadstock clothes from huge companies such as Ralph Lauren and Champion for $40 each and sold them for more than $550 each.
However, Virgil wanted to do something more than just print logos on clothes. So, he closed down Pyrex Vision in 2013 and started his second company, Off-White, around the same year.
Off-White was a relaunch of Pyrex Vision of sorts, with new concepts for products. Based in Milan, Off-White launched a womenswear line in 2014 and opened the company’s first concept store in Tokyo in 2016.
Fast forward to 2018; the style pioneer was appointed as the artistic director for Louis Vuitton’s menswear division. He has been working with them ever since.
