The Cristobal Balenciaga Exhbition has attracted the interest of royalty and the super famous, it is that amazing. Set to be inaugrated by Queen Sofía of Spain, "Balenciaga: Spanish Master" will be opening to the public on November 19 on the Upper East Side. Having being curated by Hamish Bowles of Vogue, the exhibition examines the work of the marvellous man that was Balenciaga and how his Spanish influences are prevalent in the 60 pieces of clothing and accessories on display.
Items to be included are Balenciaga's "Infanta" gown from 1939, matador boleros from 1946, flamenco-inspired dresses from the fifties and sixties and the embroidered wedding dress worn in 1957 by Sonsoles Díez, daughter of Balenciaga's muse, Marquesa de Llanzol. It is rumoured that some of the pieces have never been exhibited and have been pulled from many private collections across the world. The show ends February 19 so make sure you catch a glimpse before then.
