Instagram Users Demand Luis Vuitton Gives Young Artist A Job
Getting a job can be hard: you have to write your CV, go through the painstaking application process, including multiple interviews... and at the end of it all you might just be told, 'Sorry, we just don't think this is the right fit for you.'
And that's just for any old job. How difficult is it then to land the job of your dreams?
Well, for on savvy young artist it might not be that hard at all, It's actually very simple.
Using the power of social media, rapper and graphic designer Magnus Juliano could just be about to land himself a job with one of the world's biggest fashion labels.
No CV. No interview. Nothing. But how?
Thinking outside the box, the creative from the US styled his own hair with colorful beads and huge Louis Vuitton logos attached to the end of each braid.
After taking some pictures he shared them to Instagram and tagged the fashion giant in the post.
Tagging the label's men's artistic director in his caption, on New Year's Day he wrote: "Hey @VirgilAbloh, can I earn an internship? I have ideas!"

And after seeing Magnus' designs Instagram followers are now demanding that Luis Vuitton give him a chance, calling his colourful designs 'genius' and 'amazing'.
One fan wrote: "@virgilabloh hire him! This is fire."
Another added: "This is so dope! You deserve a job."
While a third wrote: "This is fresh, current yet timeless and iconic. You are a genuine creative/design genius!"
Speaking to Vogue, the 27-year-old said he had the idea way back in the summer but it took about six months to finish. He joined forces with Eat Crow Studio, a 3D-printing team, to create the colourful LV shapes for the braids, and with hair stylist Ciera Jackson to weave his hair through them.
He told them: "I failed in production a few times, so I had to keep restarting again and again. It was discouraging and I almost walked away from it, but [fortunately] I regrouped.
"I chose [to pay tribute to] Louis Vuitton because of the impact [the brand has] had on art and design, but from the perspective of designers like Dapper Dan, who didn't have access to [luxury brands] yet still made hip-hop couture using their likeness."
Magnus admitted that he was a bit of a fanboy of the label's director Abloh, so he decided he would be the best person to reach out to.
Come on, give him a job.
