Victoria and Albert Museum
Cromwell Road, South Kensington, SW7 2RL South Kensington
The first exhibit of Balenciaga work in the U.K. planned to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the first Cristóbal Balenciaga store opening in 1917 in San Sebastian, Spain, and also with the 80th anniversary of his French salon that opened in Paris in 1937.

The exhibition will be a celebration of the V&A’s extensive Balenciaga holdings, first collected for the museum in the seventies by Balenciaga’s long-standing friend, the fashion photographer and designer Cecil Beaton, that in 1971 curated in the V&A the landmark fashion exhibition «Fashion: An Anthology».

Curated by Cassie Davies-Strodder, the show will examine the ways the designer’s innovative use of fabrics and craftsmanship influenced haute couture in the 20th century by focusing on the work he produced during the fifties and sixties, the couturier’s most creative period.
