In 2011, Olivier Rousteing was appointed as the creative director of Balmain, becoming the first black creative director of a luxury label in many years and the youngest creative director of a major fashion house since Yves Saint Laurent. So it is no surprise that he has pushed to make the label more accessible and more inclusive. He has embraced racial diversity within the brand and championed stars like Rihanna and Ciara since before they were considered "high fashion." Rousteing also collaborated with H&M in 2015 to create the Balmain x H&M Collection, which pushed the brand to become even more of a household name. Currently, Rousteing is working on a documentary about his life, from being adopted as a baby in Bordeaux to his meteoric rise to fame.
