Last night, the news of Virgil Abloh's untimely passing, at the age of just 41, sent shockwaves through the fashion industry.
Although the designer had been battling a rare, aggressive form of cancer for over two years, Abloh had kept the news private, choosing to fight the disease in secret, meaning that many of his friends and collaborators had no idea that he was unwell.
As one of the most well-respected and beloved designers in the fashion industry, many have taken the news very hard. Below, we round up some of the beautiful tributes written by those who worked alongside him, those who knew and loved him, and also from fellow fashion houses, who respected him as one of this generation's greatest.
