RH Group is sponsoring an international exhibition; Balenciaga – Master of Couture, which is displaying over 100 pieces crafted by Cristóbal Balenciaga, his protégées and contemporary fashion designers in Borås, Sweden at the Borås Textile Museum, December 15 2018 – April 22nd 2019.
This is the only European stop, which began at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London with 272,500 visitors attending the exhibition.
Spanish, Cristóbal Balenciaga, (1895 – 1972), was one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the 20th century. His exquisite craftsmanship and pioneering use of fabrics revolutionised the female silhouette, setting the tone for modern fashion.
This collection includes examples from the designer’s golden age, the 1950s and 60s, such as the tunic, sack, baby doll and shift dresses – all of which remain style staples today.
For those of you interested in fashion, fabrics or history, this is a must see.
