About OFF-WHITE: Virgil Abloh on Creativity

Founded in 2014, OFF-WHITE has been very popular since its birth. For the founder of the brand, Virgil Abloh, the purpose of OFF-WHITE is to make up for the gap that his former fashion brand Pyrex Vision could not present, that is, to combine street fashion with high fashion. Virgil Abloh is the designer of Kanye West, and naturally has a celebrity resource that other brands can’t match. Overnight, this New York street brand successfully captured young people around the world. OFF-WHITE is a rising star because of his unique design style, which is in line with the personality of young people in our generation. However, designer Virgil Abloh has made OFF-WHITE which is a street brand slowly transforming into a fashion brand.

Born in Chicago, Virgil Abloh’s major was not in fashion. He studied Construction Engineering and worked for an architect after graduation. In 2002, Virgil Abloh switched to the Kanye West’s team and began to design clothes. In 2012, he founded the street brand PYREX VISION. Later, to make up for the lack of Pyrex Vision’s inability and to combine street fashion with high-end fashion, Off-White was established. The reason why Off-White is now so popular is that the former brand Pyrex vision has been indispensable. If there is no PYREX to pave the way, it will not be able to occupy the young trend market in less than four years.
