Cristóbal Balenciaga went from seamstress’s son to designer’s designer. We learn that the Basque couturier was self-taught and never sketched a single garment. So how did this recluse who preferred his religion to charming the press end up as such a key influence of 20th century fashion?
The small Basque fishing town of Getaria was the birthplace of fashion couturier Cristóbal Balenciaga and is now home to The Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa which houses over 1,200 Balenciaga pieces in its collection. #cristobalbalenciagamuseoa#balenciaga
