About this product
- DescriptionToday's global luxury brand Balenciaga owes its name and existence to one of the twentieth century's most invative fashion designers, the internationally rewned Basque Cristobal Balenciaga. Miren Arzalluz's in-depth study reveals the roots of Balenciaga's Parisian success, unveiling his formative experiences and achievements in Spain against the backdrop of his social and cultural heritage. In extraordinary detail, this fascinating book examines how and where garments were made, and why some demonstrate the cutting edge of fashion while others may seem conservative. Arzalluz reveals the importance of family and friends, as well as patrons and employees in establishing Balenciaga's reputation and his sensitivity to the ecomic and political environment.
- Author BiographyMiren Arzalluz is Curator at the Balenciaga Foundation. She specialized in the history of dress and fashion at the Courtauld Institute of Art, and has previously worked at various British museums including the V&A and Kensington Palace.
