FROM RUNWAY TO STUDIO
Olivier Yoan grew up in the picturesque south of France that inspired so many great artists. That, and the love for all things creative that runs in his family, led him to the worlds of fashion and photography. At 17 he quit school to travel the world for six years modelling for labels such as Hermès, Cerruti and Levi’s. At 22 he bought his first professional camera and began shooting friends in the modelling industry. Now his clients include major fashion brands and magazines, as well as NGOS such as World Vision and Habitat for Humanity. He shoots this month’s cover star, Sharie Ross-tse (p.174), and our Chanel Haute Couture fashion spread (p.110).
