Here’s another amazing opportunity for young black student designers from @virgilabloh & his brand partners.
anyone that’s ever been in a meeting with me or a creative brainstorm or even a random iMessage chat knows that i’m forever fighting for the “17-year-old-version” of myself.
what that specifically means is... all i want is for any young black kid to achieve a shorter path to their career goals, and if i can help with an open source approach to opening doors or messaging "how-i-did-it" along the whole way, then i've done my real job, not my actual job.
i'm putting money, my resources, and my rolodex where my mouth is... just keeping it “Two Virgil’s” or more accurately “That many Virgil’s” in the slideshow above: i've started a scholarship fund for black students and raised $1 million so far, pre-announcement with the same manic creative brainstorm that got me here with the support of some of my collaborators and the @fashionscholarshipfund it’s called the Virgil Abloh™ "POST-MODERN" scholarship fund. ~ link in bio for more details. email me there.
the goal is to make sure i'm not one of the few, but one of many in my industry...
