An air of mystery reigned at the end of the Balmain fashion show on September 28, 2011: nobody knew who was about to take a bow. No one in the room knew the new house designer. His name is Olivier Rousteing.
Ever since Yves Saint Laurent’s mythical rise to the top of the Dior house at the age of 21, the world of fashion has delighted in young prodigies whose fine instincts and outstanding personalities promise to change the course of things. Olivier Rousteing belongs to this line of descent.
Paris has a new hero. But it’s not an easy legacy to bear, especially in the mythical French house created in 1945 by Pierre Balmain. Is Olivier Rousteing disconnected from reality? How does he manage the stress before a fashion show? How does he build team spirit? How does he dream up and subsequently perfect his talents as a tailor?
