Born in London and raised in Paris, Olympia Le-Tan is a self-taught fashion designer. 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 later created his own brand with Le-Tan by his side.

In 2009, Le-Tan launched her eponymous accessories label, combining two of her obsessions—embroidery and literature (a passion she shares with her father, French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan)—to create one-of-a kind handbags and minaudières. Ready-to-wear, added in 2012, offers classic clothes with a twist: a mix of her British and Parisian heritage.
