Balenciaga: Spanish Master

Balenciaga is holding an exhibition at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute from now till 19th February 2011.

The exhibition, conceived by Oscar de la Renta, explores the influence of Spanish culture, history and art on visionary designer, Cristóbal Balenciaga. Think boleros jackets, flamenco inspired dresses, etc.

Beautiful pieces of Balenciaga with influences from the Spanish culture.
