Olivier Rousteing, Who Spent a Decade at Balmain, Shares His Long Experience

Olivier Rousteing will celebrate his decade

Olivier Rousteing will celebrate his decade of experience at Balmain during Paris Fashion Week. The event which is scheduled for Wednesday will feature various musical performers, as well as the designer’s spring 2022 collections both for women and men.

Olivier Rousteing, who spent a decade at the Paris-based fashion house, shares his path at an interview at his office. The designer, who recently celebrated his 35th birthday, started his career at the house being 25 years old after just two years of working in the studio. Before joining Balmain, the Bordeaux-born artist worked at Roberto Cavalli in Milan for almost six years. And now, the French brand has grown in size since Olivier’s arrival in 2009.

When he first came to the French house, he immediately liked the chic aesthetic that absolutely matches him today. Rousteing also noticed a lot of similarities between Mr. Balmain who was then the head of one of the oldest houses in France and him.

Then, Olivier in his 25s was naive but still was trying to follow the steps of the perfect designer people wanted him to be. And despite many people were against him, judging and criticizing his choices, he became an adult and more confident. He learned to take criticism from those people who probably will never like his work. The main thing he found is a balance and understanding of the critiques.

For these 10 years, Olivier has seen so many changes with designers leaving. And not only he appreciates this beautiful adventure but is also proud to stay in the house for so long, learning and transmitting its language.
