Olympia Le-Tan was born in London and raised in Paris. She launched her eponymous accessories label in 2009 combining a grandmother-inherited talent of embroidery and a passion of literature, which she shares with her father. In 1012 Le-Tan launched her RTW collection that channels her French-British background. She is a self-taught designer who impressively started her career out at the Chanel design studio with Karl Lagerfeld then went on to work with Balmain. Le-Tan’s designs are now internationally admired.
