Designer 101: Balenciaga

I have great appreciation for Balenciaga’s willingness to push boundaries in design. Even their ready-to-wear has elements of couture and futuristic inspiration. That kind of innovation has staying power in the fashion world. Today, over 100 years after their founding in 1917 in Spain, Balenciaga is still one of the hottest and most influential luxury fashion brands. You can thank Cristóbal Balenciaga for babydoll dresses, bubble skirts and knee high boots (& I do). The entire footwear sections of department stores are currently filled with sock shoes/boots and chunky running shoes… but we all know who’s original design that is.
