Balenciaga and Fine Fabrics

Thanks to Rachel Antigone Eban from tiggystyles.com for writing about her experience visiting an exhibit featuring the work of couturier Balenciaga at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England. If I had the opportunity, I might go there everyday to intensely study all aspects of this fine exhibition!

You don’t really know how poor quality most of the fabric in our high street stores is, until you’ve seen and felt the real thing. Sixty years ago, in the time of our grandmother’s youth, materials were thicker, better hanging and longer lasting. The Balenciaga exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum shows us the artistic heights fashion can reach when quality fabrics are employed.
