  2. I don't get it why do you have to make everything racial with 'first african american designer in lv history' come on it's not even about that it's about fashion smh.

  3. Not that Virgil is obligated to mention anything to do with being Black, but it's rather disappointing he didn't really speak more on about an opportunity like this and how it's historical in a sense, in reference to Black people and our influence on fashion.

  4. Somebody tell Marc Ecko this is NOT news!! As a brown man, should I say, YAY!! They let 1 of us in @ LV!! Tell dude to Teach people the art of making clothes and take the power from a major, for overpriced "fashion" otherwise…. FakeNews.
