On December 3rd and 4th, Prada Mode Moscow took over the Levenson Mansion for the sixth edition. For the occasion, the artist Damien Hirst transformed the historic building with his installation, Pharmacy: inside he designed furniture, architectural details such as a huge molecular model in its window, light boxes, and a wallpaper design taken from a catalogue of prescription medicine.
