This week I will mostly be thinking about Balenciaga.
Born on 21st January 1895, Cristobal Balenciaga was a directional force in women's fashion. A contemporary of Christian Dior, his silhouettes were just as revolutionary. A genius with shape, his creations were defined by proportion. In contrast to the sculpting corsetry of the 1950s, in his designs, instead of constraining the female form, he cocooned it in elegance and artistry.
