Tel Aviv Museum of Art presents CRISTOBAL BALENCIAGA collector of fashions

Tel Aviv Museum of Art presents CRISTOBAL BALENCIAGA, collector of fashions, an exhibition on view through 28 April 2013.

When, in 1968, the House of Balenciaga closed its doors in Paris, some considered it to be the end of an era of elegance. The exhibition presents the passion of Spanish couturier Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895–1972) for Spain’s heritage, as expressed through his collected archive of clothes and textiles, and combines items from the archive with Balenciaga designs, with references to their cultural and historical contexts. –
