A Case for Couture

Would you die for this dress?

How about this one?
Of course you would and you can thank this guy.
Cristobal Balenciaga revolutionized couture from the day he opened his Paris Fashion house (1937) until he retired in 1968. Some would say fashion died a little death that day. They would be right.

Through donations of personal collections and those from museums, the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute in New York will host an extensive collection of 60 gowns showcasing Balenciaga's impeccable detail and perfection. The exhibit will start in November and run through February 2011. It is located at 684 Park Avenue at 68th Street. This dress will be there.
