Excerpt:

A Study of Christóbal Balenciaga, Paris 2006

I went to the Exhibition Balenciaga Paris at Les Arts décoratifs Musée de la Mode et du Textile, Paris, with the Senior Studio instructors of the Fashion Design Department of Otis College of Art and Design, to study the works of Christobal Balenciaga. We arrived at the Museum on July 21, 2006. Pamela Golbin, the curator of the Balenciaga exhibit, gave us a private tour of the works of Balenciaga. The exhibition is of a grand scale with 150 pieces of Balenciaga's beautiful clothing. The exhibit displayed clothes made from 1937 to 1967. We learned about Balenciaga, his clothes, and his habits as he designed. I thank Pamela Golbin for the great insight on the how and why of Balenciaga design.
