Balenciaga Takes Fashion To A New LevelPosted: Wednesday, June 27, 2007
Last night, during her performance, Beyonce wore a $100,000 gold pair of Balenciaga leggings. (Can someone please tell me where I can get that wig?)
I admire women like Beyonce who possess the ability, bravery, and confidence to push the fashion envelope by starting something new or taking a trend to a place where it becomes their own.
Most of all, I love the designers who design clothes that allow women to be feminine yet unique and express their individual personality. Balenciaga is one of those designers.
Once called “the master of us all” by Christian Dior, Cristobal Balenciaga opened his first showroom in 1937. His odd, feminine designs inspired designers such as Ungaro and Givenchy. Balenciaga died in March of 1972. Though the House of Balenciaga is now apart of the Gucci Group, his spirit is still apparent in every design.
