The designer Marc Jacobs himself commented on her Instagram post, "What happened with your improv due to a wardrobe malfunction is a testament to your character. Being true to yourself. Able to rise to any occasion and bring joy regardless of the situation. I feel so grateful that this mistake occurred and that it fell into your arms (or feet as the case may be). It's not often one has the great pleasure of experiencing an "honest" moment. Thank you for being the best Gigi I know and sharing yourself with me and the audience!" Keep doing you, Gigi.

His team continued that Abloh is "designing the Off-White show in Paris to replace his attendance with a creative new approach that will include crowd participation" and "continues to work closely with his teams at Louis Vuitton and Off-White as well as his brands he collaborates with around the world".
News on his health was first reported by Vogue, where he revealed, "I was just tired, so I went to the doctor. Ultimately everything is fine, but the doctor told me ‘this pace that you've sort of pushed your body- to fly all these miles, do all these different projects-is not good for your health." Self-care is important!
