Olympia Le-Tan is a self-taught fashion designer. She was born in
London and raised in Paris and likes to say she is English, French
and Vietnamese. She started her career at the Chanel design
studio with Karl Lagerfeld then went on to Balmain where she
worked closely with Gilles Dufour who then created his own
brand with Olympia by his side. In 2009, she launched her eponymous accessories label,
combining her two obsessions, embroidery (a talent she inherited
from her grand-mother), and literature (a passion she shares with
her father, French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan) to create one of a kind
handbags and minaudières. The bags are handmade with love in
France in very limited editions. In March 2012, she launched her first ready to wear collection,
classic clothes with a twist, a mix between Olympia's British and
Paris heritage using velvets, tartans, college stripes and Liberty
