Balenciaga Luxury Vintage
Cristobal Balenciaga (1896-1972) started in the fashion business as a tailor in Spain. In 1917, he established Eisa Fashion House, named for his mother. He left Spain due to the Spanish Civil War, and went to Paris. There he opened his couture house in 1937. The business was closed from 1940 until 1945, but reopened after the war. Balenciaga retired in 1968, and died four years later.Balenciaga was known for his sculptural approach to design. The cut and construction was often quite complicated, but the result was seemingly simple.
