       Olivier Rousteing didn't wait for a moment-he made it happen.Now the 27 year old
       creative director of Balmain has the fashion world at his feet.
       Blessed with boyish looks and Parisian style!
       He sits at the Paris Headquarters of Balmain, the prestigious fashion house he's been
       heading for almost five seasons.



        'I hate being covered up-he says, some fashion designers are like that" for me it's more
         interesting to play with the body by not showing anything" I have more primal approach
         to that: When you have an asset, you have to be proud of it, not hide it.
         After five years with Cavalli the young Olivier Rousteing movrd onto Balmain 



      Rousteing took another gamble and wrote directly to Christophe Decarnin then creative director
      of Balmain"I loved his shows, his creativity. his strong personality"
      Decarnin must have recognized the potential the young designer and hired him to become
      the new creative director for Balmain
      The virtual unknown was propelled into the limelight to salute the audience after his debut
      collection-a triumph-and became an instant hit
