With a career spanning over fifty years, Cristobal Balenciaga left an indelible footprint in the history of fashion and haute couture. The Basque-born designer, with a reputation for perfectionism and never sketching the garments he created is now celebrated through a thoroughly crafted interactive virtual tour, one that is almost as perfectionist as the man himself.
This exhibition is guaranteed to raise some eyebrows through its unique browsing experience and effective storytelling of one of the most distinguished names in fashion. Showcasing exclusive historical material with a twist of chic, this collection transports us to the glamour of the 60's.
