Kanye West couldn't hold back tears at the Louis Vuitton Fashion Show in Paris yesterday. On their artistic carpet, West was approached by his good friend Virgil Abloh. The reason this moment was special is that Abloh is officially the first African-American Artistic Director for Louis Vuitton.
As we all know, Kanye West has always been involved with fashion. He has been very public with his struggles on the road to success in fashion. He has shared with us his debt, failed partnerships, and much more. With that being said, this was a win for the African-American culture and Kanye West personally. Now that there is a person of color in the higher tiers of the company, it paves the way for everyone else struggling to reach the top.
Big congratulations to Virgil Abloh! See video below:
