French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing, president of fashion house Balmain, has revealed that he suffered serious burns in an explosion at his Paris home last year.
Rosting (36) shared photos on Instagram on Sunday of him wrapped in bandages, with visible burns on his face. At the time, exactly a year ago, a fireplace blew out in Rosting’s home, but the fashion designer kept the news a secret until Sunday. “I’m finally ready to share this,” Rusting wrote. “I’ve been hiding this for far too long, and it’s time you found out. A year ago a fireplace blew in my house. I woke up in the hospital the next morning. I was looked after by the talented staff, who had to take care of an incredible number of coronavirus cases. I can’t To thank them enough.”
“I did everything in my power to keep this story secret from as many people as possible,” Rousteing continued. “Honestly, I’m not sure why I felt so ashamed. Maybe my obsession with perfection was what the fashion world became famous for, or it was the cause of my insecurities. To forget it, I worked day and night on my collections while I was recovering, trying to make the world dream. At the same time. I hid my scars behind masks, high neck T-shirts, long sleeves and even a lot of rings during interviews or photo shoots.”
“Now I realize the power of social media: only revealing yourself what you want to show. It makes us all tell a story where we avoid what we don’t want to see or show. But after a year – healed, happy and healthy – I realize how blessed I am. I feel free, relaxed and happy. I will start a new chapter today with a smile on my face and a heart full of gratitude.”
