Both of them are from Chicago, and have been friends since the early 2000s and even interned at Fendi together in 2009. Following their internship, West appointed Abloh the creative director of his agency, DONDA.

The show was held in the garden of the Palais-Royal in Paris, West sat alongside wife Kim Kardashian West, sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, and rapper Travis Scott. Tracks from the rapper's newly-released album, Ye, were also played during the show.

In a recent interview with Axel Vervoordt, West seemed conflicted about his feelings on Abloh's appointment at Louis Vuitton. “I had been dealing with a very heavy concept this week that I couldn't get out of my head," the rapper revealed. When pressed about what happened, he answered, "It's not bad or good, it's my creative collaborator being the head of Louis Vuitton."
