Fireplace Exploded: Balmain Creative Director Shared a Photo After Hospital
Few people guessed that Olivier Rousteing did not just wear turtlenecks, protective masks, and caps that hide his eyes. On October 9, the creative director of Balmain celebrated his “second birthday”. The designer published a heartbreaking post on Instagram, where he talked about the terrible incident and the difficult operations that he had to survive.
A year ago, the 36-year-old French fashion designer was seriously injured when a fireplace exploded in his own house. As a result, he received serious burns to his face, head, and upper half of the body. That is why he was forced to hide from the public for a long time. And now. the artistic director of the fashion house spoke for the first time about a serious injury.
What happened helped the fashion designer understand one thing: the power of social networks is to show only what a person wants to show. Now, he is healed, healthy, happy, and thanks God for every day of his life. According to him, the last Balmain show was dedicated not only to the 10th anniversary of his work for the brand but also to the celebration of the victory over pain, the rebirth of a new life.
He supplemented the publication with a picture in which his upper body and head are in bandages, and scars are visible on his face. The post caused a great response, collecting more than half a million likes, and words of support for Rusten were expressed by designer Donatella Versace, Kim Kardashian, supermodel Cindy Crawford, and many others. The designer is still undergoing rehabilitation.
