Cristóbal Balenciaga is one of the most revered and influential designers of the 20th century.

His unique and forward-thinking vision of female beauty, innovative use of textiles and ingenious pattern-cutting, shaped the modernity of 1960s fashion and continues to shape fashion today.

This is the exhibition on Balenciaga in the UK and marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of his first fashion house and 80 years since the opening of his famous house in Paris.

The exhibition takes an in depth look at the craftsmanship behind Balenciaga’s designs and explores his impact through designers who worked with him and those who show his influence today.
