Silk taffeta evening dress, Cristóbal Balenciaga, 1955.
I took a day out from the studio last week and went to the Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion exhibition currently showing at the V&A.
There are over 100 pieces to see from the master of couture himself and his contemporaries. Well worth a visit to see first hand some of his iconic pieces such as the ‘envelope’ dress.
On at the V&A until 18th February 2018
