Umit Benan posted on Wednesday on his Instagram account two pictures from his past shows with cryptic captions, including: “Farewell to showtime. It’s been fun playing the Showman.”

In one of the two captions, the Turkish men’s wear designer used the #NoMoreShowTime hashtag. Reached by phone, a company spokesperson declined to provide further details and said that “an official statement will be released very soon.”

Benan, who built a name for himself with captivating presentations and catwalks featuring movielike sets and unconventional castings, relocated his runway show from Milan to Paris in January 2014.
