Balenciaga: Shaping fashion exhibition
Do you live in London? Or are you planning to go there in the next 8 months? You should visit the exhibition dedicated to Balenciaga! My sister’s been there (and I am so jealous) and told me everything about it… of course she also took these pictures for me!
With over 100 pieces crafted by ‘the master’ of couture, this is the first UK exhibition to explore the work and legacy of the Spanish couturier. It examines Balenciaga’s work from the 1950s and 1960s – arguably the most creative period of his career – when he dressed some of the most renowned women of the age and became revered by his contemporaries, including Christian Dior and Coco Chanel. In fact, this are Coco Chanel’s words regarding the artist: Balenciaga alone is a couturier in the truest sense of the word. Only he is capable of cutting material, assembling a creation and sewing it by hand, the others are simply fashion designers.
You have until February 18th to visit the exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Tickets cost £12 (circa €13,7) and I am sure you will really enjoy it! Want to know more? Here’s the link to the exhibition’s website: https://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/balenciaga-shaping-fashion#events
