Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion exhibition at the V&A

Even before started blogging about fashion, I always loved going to fashion exhibitions in London. It’s been a while since I covered an exhibition on my blog so I’m really excited to be writing this. I recently went to the Balenciaga exhibition at the V&A museum with some friends. The exhibition was curated by Cassie Davies-Strodder and really highlighted the influence Cristóbal Balenciaga had in the fashion industry. I learned so much about the designer which I never knew before.

The designs and outfits showcased at the exhibition were simply stunning and emphasised how creative and bold Balenciaga is, as his designs even inspired Givenchy (who I also love) and Alexander McQueen.

Over 100 pieces are presented at the exhibition, many crafted by Balenciaga himself but also pieces created by his students. I took photos of all of my favourite designs and they were of course the embellished gowns and evening wear. Balenciaga’s clients included famous names such as Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.

Although the exhibition has been open for a while, there’s still time to see it as it ends on 18th February. If you love fashion as much as I do, I would highly recommend it.
