Born in Rockford, Illinois U.S.A. in 1980 – Virgil Abloh is an artist, architect, and fashion designer.
After earning a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he completed a Master’s degree in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
It was here at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he was introduced to a curriculum, originally established by Mies van der Rohe. A curriculum which was formed from the notions of Bauhaus, that enabled Virgil Abloh to learn how to converge the fields of arts, craft, and design.
Those notions merged with contemporary culture make up his inter-disciplinary practice today; stemming from his last 15 years, which is summarized below.
