Abloh feels that “his critique shows the line in the sand about youth culture”. He went on to speak deeper about it to W Mag, saying that there is a divide between those in the industry that do and don’t accept streetwear as a real medium of fashion. Abloh doesn’t want this to discourage younger designers. He commented:
“I don’t come from where I’m supposed to come from. So I have to prove that this is design, that this is art, that this is valid. I’m always trying to prove to my 17-year-old self that I can do creative things I thought weren’t possible.”
