In 1917 Cristobal Balenciaga opened the first Maison of haute couture in San Sebastián in Spain before moving to Paris. In 1968 the "sculptor tailor" presented his latest collection and retired after 30 years of innovating the fashion industry. Today the Parisian house continues to be one of the most influential brands in the world. Under the avant-garde aegis of the creative director Demna Gvasalia the distinctive traits of the brand merge with an innovative design, thus giving a post-modern approach to the impeccable tailoring that has always characterized Balenciaga.
