Balenciaga On Show

The fashion world has been casting a spotlight on Balenciaga of late, especially with Demna Gvasalia showing his first collection as Creative Director at this past Paris Fashion Week. So there seems no time more appropriate to reflect back on the company’s beginning.

An upcoming exhibit in design-centric Antwerp will closely examine the work of the man who started it all, Cristobal Balenciaga. THE Balenciaga was an innovator of form in the fashion world. He played a lead role in shedding the industry’s loyalty from the traditional hourglass figure, forcing the masses to consider the possibility of more sculptural and avant-garde shapes.

The exhibition, “Game Changers: Reinventing the 20th Century Silhouette” will open March 18th at the Modemuseum, ongoing until mid August.
