10 Milestones from Olivier Rousteing's Decade at Balmain

In 10 years as Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing has shaken all the fashion rules, making Balmain one of the world's most successful brands.

He is one of the very few black designers to head a European fashion house and has a surprisingly long tenure. In celebration of his 10-year anniversary at the helm of the brand, L'OFFICIEL remembers some of his most iconic moments at Balmain.
