One of A Kind – Olivier Rousteing
This is one name that I am seeing everywhere. Everyone is talking about Olivier, Blogging about him, doing interviews with him. But who is he really?
What most people know about him is that Olivier Rousteing is a French fashion designer, who is creative Director of Balmain. However, not many people know, that he is shy with new people. He is only 29 and he became Creative Director of Balmain at the age of 24. He also worked for Roberto Cavalli soon after graduating.
The two main reason’s I admire this man is, firstly, He brought Balmain to the forefront. Before Olivier, apart from people who were really into fashion and brands, hardly anyone knew Balmain. Yes, one would see it here and there but it wasn’t the big name it is now.
And Secondly, Olivier has used social media to interact with people and show people that he is a normal and accessible human being. He connects with his fans using pictures that they can relate to on Instagram , he answers questions from fans on twitter and answers Alexa Chung’s Questions onYouTube .
He has dressed and done campaign’s with many celebrities and his current favourites seem to be Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Jourdun Dunn. He worked with them on his collaboration with H & M.
And this amazing guy has now gone and reunited iconic supermodels, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer in the latest Balmain Campaign.
Every campaign he launches has something unique and outstanding and after each one, i am expecting an even better one and Olivier never disappoints.
Another thing I adore about him is his selfie skills. Any Self-respecting pouter and Selfie taker would be jealous of his amazing facial bone structure (His cheekbones are to die for!!).
And this only seems like the beginning of his invasion of the fashion and social media world. This man is going to go much further and all we have to do now is watch and learn.
