Balenciaga is a FrenchÂ fashion houseÂ founded byÂ CristÃ³bal Balenciaga, a SpanishÂ designer, born in theÂ Basque Country,Â Spain. He had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards, once referred to as “the master of us all” byÂ Christian Dior.Â His bubble skirts and feminine, yet ultra-modern shapes were trademarksÂ of the house.
The House of Balenciaga is now owned by theÂ FrenchÂ multinational companyÂ Kering, with Alexander Wang as their current creative director. Wang “reinvents and immortalizes” the brand’s codes through his own sporty, modern lens.
