The reason for Virgil’s death is a rare type of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma, which he decided to fight in silence. After Virgil passed away, his last show for Louis Vuitton spring/summer collection was staged in Miami on November 30th, under the “Virgil Was Here” headline. In addition, Louis Vuitton shared an emotional video on their Instagram and Youtube accounts by referring to “Louis Vuitton pays tribute to the life and legacy of a creative genius”.
