Balenciaga: Shaping FashionHe shunned publicity, was rarely seen and gave only one full interview in his life yet Christian Dior called him "the master of us all". Spanish designer Cristobal Balenciaga, the king of haute couture in the 1950s and 1960s, is the subject of a V & A exhibition, marking the 100th anniversary of the opening of his first fashion house in San Sebastian. 80 years after the opening of his famous Paris salon in 1937, Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion takes an "almost forensic" look at the craftsmanship and skill that made his creations so special. Around 100 beautiful garments and 20 hats go on display, representing the work of Balenciaga and his followers. Sketches, photographs and fabric samples are shown alongside the garments and patterns, x-rays, toiles and film to reveal how they were made.
