Virgil Abloh has a lot on his plate. Besides designing his own collections and working on a range of collaborations, the Off-White™ designer is prepping to deliver a speech at Harvard.

According to Abloh’s Instagram story, seen below, the designer will give a lecture to Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. The discourse, likely entitled “Program Organization, Sequencing Experiences,” will focus on “a Contemporary Design Theory.” Considering Abloh’s background in architecture and that the Instagram Story makes notice of an Architectural Design studio, it’s possible that the lecture won’t focus on fashion design at all. Virgil Abloh’s Harvard lecture is set to take place at the Ivy League research university October 26 at 3:30 pm EST.
