    V&A To Stage Balenciaga Retrospective

    THE V&A will stage a fashion exhibition next year showcasing the work of Cristóbal Balenciaga, the museum has announced today, as part of its 2017 calendar.

    CLIFFORD COFFIN, MAY 1948
    The retrospective, entitled Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion, will be the first exhibition dedicated to the famed Spanish designer in the UK, marking the 100th anniversary of the opening of his first fashion house and 80 years since he opened the doors of his famous Paris salon. Featuring around 100 garments and 20 hats crafted by the couturier and his followers - alongside sketches, photographs, film and fabric samples - it will examine in detail the craftsmanship and techniques that earned Balenciaga the reputation as one of the most pioneering designers of the 20th century and look at how his work impacted the future of fashion design.

    It follows the likes of previous fashion exhibitions presented at the V&A, including the major Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty spectacle which remains the museum's most-visited exhibition to date.
    Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion will take place from May 27 2017 to February 18 2018.
