Abloh died Sunday, November 28 at the age of 41 from cardiac angiosarcoma, a form of cancer. The designer was the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collections and the founder of the fashion brand Off-White.
Louis Vuitton held a presentation of Abloh’s Spring / Summer 2022 collection in Miami, Florida on Tuesday, November 30. The event, titled “Virgil Was Here”, was the fashion house’s way of paying “homage to the life and legacy of a creative genius”.
According to Hollywood journalist, Trump and Kushner attended the fashion show alongside guests including Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and Bella Hadid.
The post shared a photo of the couple mingling with other guests, as well as an image of badges that read “Mrs. Ivanka Trump” and “Mr. Jared Kushner.”
Some disagreed on social media after the news of Trump and Kushner’s attendance was announced. Both were senior advisers to Donald Trump, Ivanka’s father, during his presidency, and they remain associated with his statements and policies.
Journalist Marlow Stern tweeted that Trump and Kushner were allocated seats “for a show commemorating the late Virgil Abloh, that’s just too much.”
Journalist Kim Masters wrote: “Do not standardize. “
Someone else share: “I would prefer that they stay hidden for the rest of their life. Tired of looking at one or the other.
