The Balmain Style – A Joint Event Held by the Shenkar Members Club and Docaviv
“When you become controversial, when you want to promote a new idea, you have to become the face of it and not be afraid.” – Olivier Rousteing.
The members of the Shenkar Members Club – Young Friends of Shenkar Club and the Docaviv organization met on Monday, 12 December 2022, to launch the new collaboration between the two bodies.
The evening included an exclusive screening of the fashion documentary, “The Balmain Style,” which tells the story of the rise of Olivier Rousteing, the prodigy appointed creative director of the brand in 2011, to the peak of the fashion world.
The film delves into Rousteing’s preparations for the Balmain fashion show as he tries to rebuild the spirit of the old brand without forgetting tradition; overcome the pressure involved; and still manage his many famous friends.
