Off-White Names Ibrahim Kamara Art and Image Director

Celebrated fashion director and stylist Ibrahim Kamara, who is currently editor-in-chief of Dazed, will join a team overseeing the creative direction of Off-White in the role of art and image director, according to a statement released by the label on Saturday.

Off-White has been without a creative director since the death of founder Virgil Abloh in November 2021. Executives at New Guards Group, which operates Off-White, and LVMH, which took a majority stake in its intellectual property in July 2021, have been devising a plan to harness the legacy left by Abloh to grow the brand. Kamara worked closely with Abloh, styling shows for both Off-White and LVMH-owned Louis Vuitton, where Abloh was men’s artistic director.

“In the wake of Virgil’s tragic passing we have been working tirelessly to keep his legacy alive and the brand relevant as a point of reference and platform in constant evolution,” said Andrea Grilli, Off-White’s chief executive. “Having Ibrahim on board, who has been part of the Off-White family for years styling our shows, to oversee art and creative of the brand in this next chapter is a great honour.”
