Founded in 1945, French fashion house Balmain quickly found itself becoming synonymous with
luxury elegance and opulent styling. Dressing celebrities, foreign royals and some of the most
glamorous individuals from around the world, the brand have racked up an impressive list of
famous clientele, carving their name deep into the bedrock of the fashion foundations. More
recently with the appointment of creative director Olivier Rousteing in 2011 – the second
youngest creative director in Paris at only 25 years old – the brand has seen an injection of
youthful, social media savvy sensibilities to complement their traditional and timelessly classic
design ethos and rich haute couture archival history.
