Vogue on Cristobal Balenciaga


In 1936, Cristobal Balenciaga opened a fashion house in Paris, after fleeing the Spanish civil war; within a couple of seasons he had raised fashion to the level of art. Christian Dior called Balenciaga 'the master of us all', while Coco Chanel claimed that he along was 'a couturier in the truest sense of the word ... the others are simple fashion designers'. This book explores his work.
