The Guardian review of Paris Haute Couture

Evening dress, by Cristobal Balenciaga, ca. 1952 From the Cristobal Balenciaga Museum: "Made in Paris for the 1952 spring collection, this dress has marvellous shapes and details. In 1951, Balenciaga created a dress for his autumn collection, presented as number 130, with a puffed skirt, pulled in at intervals to create a succession of four volumes. These skirts, also known as “balloon skirts”, had a leading role in the collections of that year." ❤️❤️❤️
