BALENCIAGA AND SPAIN

2011 May 9 NEWS + EVENTS

I was recently in San Francisco and saw the “Balenciaga and Spain” exhibit at the de Young museum.  Amazing, is all I can say.  His work was SO modern for his time–many of the pieces shown would not look out of place today and there were at least a dozen that I wanted to take home with me.
