Demna Gvasalia, the current creative director of Balenciaga is leaving the company he found 5 years ago in Paris. In his own words, he's expressed how the mission he once set out with Vetements has come full circle and believes he's accomplished what he wanted:
“I started Vetements because I was bored of fashion and against all odds fashion did change once and forever since Vetements appeared and it also opened a new door for so many. So I feel that I have accomplished my mission of a conceptualist and design innovator at this exceptional brand and Vetements has matured into a company that can evolve its creative heritage into a new chapter on its own.”

Earlier this year, Fizzm was on-hand in Paris when Demna did the unpredictable and featured his runway collection out of the Champs-Élysées McDonalds near the Arc de triomphe.
