La brillantez de Balenziaga: Frocks that rock!

Since he opened his first shop, in 1919, Cristóbal Balenciaga has been entrancing his clientele and us mere mortals with great frocks.

His bubble skirts and odd, feminine, yet ultra-modern shapes were (sorry are) unmistakeable qualities of his creative approach and the fashion house he founded, which continues today.

He is "The master of us all" said Christian Dior

AND The V&A always puts on a good show of frocks.

Just finished is an exhibition that examined the work and legacy of influential Spanish couturier.

There were over a hundred pieces crafted by ‘the master’ of couture, his protégées and contemporary fashion designers working in the same innovative tradition.

My top pick was a darling evening mini-dress by Emanuel Ungaro (who worked for the Master).
