So far we’ve entered 2019 with a bang, there’s already been the famous drone spectacle for the Year of Tolerance and the crazy sales at Dubai Shopping Festival. To add on to all the jam-packed activities on the calendar, Virgil Abloh came to visit the recently opened branch of his brand, Off White in Dubai Mall.
Considering that Dubai is filled with hype beasts everywhere (especially from the younger generation), it’s no wonder the turn out to welcome Virgil Abloh’s visit to his store was so massive. Off White had its official opening in Dubai Mall just a mere two months ago, back in October 2018, but Abloh had yet to visit the store (the only one in the region)… in fact, his appearance was sort of a surprise as the announcement was only posted on Instagram two days before he was scheduled to come (attached below).
Fans who were lucky enough to see him in the flesh had the chance to get their Off White pieces signed by the icon/get a picture with him during the hour-long meet ‘n’ greet… he even recorded a few stories for his personal Instagram, were you lucky enough to be featured in any? Have a look at the video below showing some of the highlights of the event!
