“It's a great privilege to be part of the YSL Beauté family!" says Ffrench. "To be affiliated with such an iconic brand, especially with a creative position, is really exciting for me as an artist. I'm looking forward to a wonderfully collaborative journey in makeup. Lloyd Simmonds’ brand vision is definitely an inspiration and the product portfolio continues to be at the forefront of makeup innovation.”

Having studied 3D at the Chelsea College of Art and then product design at Central St Martins, she joined the Theo Adams Company in 2010 where she began to see the process of painting on faces more stimulating than the actual subject she was studying. She then went on to land the role of contributing beauty editor at i-D magazine, where her name reached stardom within the industry thanks to her unique vision of beauty.
