MANILA -- He's one of the hottest names in fashion nowadays, with a reputation for having a Midas touch.
So when Louis Vuitton's first African-American artistic director and founder of streetwear label Off-White notices you, you know that you're dressing up right.
That's why Virgil Abloh reposting a photo of Filipino vlogger Mimiyuuuh on his Instagram account is such a big deal.
A screenshot of Abloh's Instagram Stories post showing Mimiyuuuh modeling a yellow dress from his Off-White line, taken from a Preview magazine photoshoot, went around online this past week.
As many suggested, it's probably a sign of approval from Abloh, whose Off-White brand was considered among the hottest of this year's first quarter, neck-and-neck with Gucci.
Though it could also be seen as another testament to the meteoric rise to fame Mimiyuuuh has been on of late, with his YouTube channel amassing more than 1.6 million subscribers in just 8 months.
One of his videos saw him do a "store raid" of the Manila Off-White branch. It has more than 1.5 million views.
