Founded in Paris in 1937 by Cristóbal Balenciaga, the house of Balenciaga was built upon its founder’s modern approach to femininity through the use of sculpture, shape and line. An innovator also in his use of fabrics, Balenciaga often used bold and substantial materials allowing him to form architectural shapes standing out from the body. Designed by Nicolas Ghesquière since 1997, Balenciaga has continued to explore modernity and femininity, often inspired by the intrinsic youth of street and subculture.
