Balenciaga exhibition at the V&A London, 30th January 2018
Before the fascinating Balenciaga exhibition closed the year 9,10 and 12 Fashion & Textiles students managed to visit it. Students learnt about Cristobal Balenciaga who is considered one of the greatest couturiers of his times, with contemporaries such as Coco Chanel and Christian Dior calling him the master of all. The downstairs part of the exhibition was dedicated to his creations.
Students were able to try on garments and learn about his working methods, watch videos about his shows and how he created and engineered patterns. In the upstairs section designs by many modern designers showcasing Balenciaga’s long lasting influences were on display.
A worthwhile visit.
