Oliver is an adoptive child that was selected by his parents when the infant was just one year old. His parents that adopted Oliver were an employee of the family as an optician as well as an uncle who was a manager at the senior level. He was born in the town of Bordeaux where he lived his early years.
Then, Oliver decided to study in Paris at the Ecole Superieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode. But, his expectations were not fulfilled at the school because Oliver was looking to do more artistic projects, and the classes were primarily academic.
Oliver found that this was an inefficient way to be spending his time, particularly given the clear objectives that he set for himself. So, Oliver decided to drop out of his first year at college. He then began looking for opportunities to work in internships that would give him the opportunity to experience a hands-on learning experience.
Oliver has openly stated that he’s gay even though he is currently in a relationship. Oliver believed that he was of mixed-race. However, he later discovered that he actually was pure African because his mother was discovered to be Somali and his father an Ethiopian.
A new documentary from Netflix named The Wonder Boy is set to explore both his professional and personal life as well as his fight with his biological mother which is one of his main concerns at the moment. Oliver has had problems in his private life. His home was destroyed by a fire that caused him to suffer many burns.
It was not until later that he spoke out about the horrific incident and he expressed his gratitude to the doctors who helped him in the hospital, even during the time when the epidemic was in full swing. In the wake of these events, Oliver would create a show centered around healing from pain through Balmain.
