Very exciting news today. The exhibition that I saw being prepared at the V&A is now coming to Australia! Top work, Bendigo, I don’t think I could love you any more than I already do. Here’s the blurb from their site:
Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion explores the work and legacy of this renowned couturier, showcasing more than 100 garments and hats crafted by Balenciaga from the 1950s and 1960s â€“ arguably the most creative period of his career â€“ through to the work of his protÃ©gÃ©s and contemporary designers who continue to work in the same innovative way today.Â
Alongside iconic garments are archive sketches, patterns, photographs, fabric samples and catwalk footage, providing a unique insight into Balenciaga’s salons and workrooms. The results of new, forensic investigations into the garments â€“ including a collaboration with X-ray artist Nick Veasey and a digital pattern making project with the London College of Fashion â€“ reveal the hidden details and processes which made Balenciaga’s work so exceptional.
