This ex­hi­bi­tion com­mem­o­rates the 100th an­niver­sary of the open­ing of Cris­to­bal Ba­len­ci­aga’s first fash­ion house. Widely re­garded as the mas­ter of haute cou­ture in the 1950s and 1960s, the Span­ish de­signer’s in­flu­ence can be seen in the work of many top fash­ion de­sign­ers even to­day. The dis­play, which in­cludes over 100 pieces and 20 hats, re­flects Ba­len­ci­aga’s in­no­va­tive use of tex­tiles and su­perb pat­tern- cut­ting skills.
