    Virgil is the Tyler Perry of fashion, you want to respect what he's accomplished and the position he's in as a black man, but the actual product that he puts out is genuinely garbage and uninspired.

    at the end of the day money rules. Virgil has a certain amount of buzz that the other designers don't have even if they are better designers. Fashion is just as much a business as it is an art form.

    This actually sums it up pretty well those off white belts are like the fashion equivalent of madea movies

    Not to mention the many times he's been notoriously known to steal other people's work and designs.

    Or how he basically got away with charging $300 for numbers printed on the back of a $40 champion hoodie. Not even reverse weave.

    In his defence, he did have RSVP and his Pyrex work was cool, just not worth the money.

    The annoying thing about him and Samuel Ross is they both get paid racks to do literally nothing with their clothing rather than pushing the boundaries of fashion which they're supposedly heralded for

    Only one who really deserves their fame is Martine Rose cus her own line is fire and she def deserves her Balenciaga role

    love Martine Rose but I feel Samuel actually has some great designs.
    Martine also was part of a great team before she went and did her own thing though.
    Virgil aint really much of a designer imo but he's improving
