I love fashion and have a strong interest in fashion history. My absolute favorite designer of all times is Cistóbal Balenciaga. Not the House of Balenciage now owned by Kering, but the Spanish couturier. His creation of femininity through ultra modern, unique shapes were his trademarks. He opened his Paris couture house on Avenue George V in August 1937, and had introduced the tradition of Spanish dress to the Parisian Couture territory, demonstrating how much greater the modern cagreat modern can be when based on nationalistic flavor.
