For Cristóbal Balenciaga, black was more than a color or even a noncolor; it was a vibrant matter! His amazing evolution of draping and manipulation towards fabrics was magical. Palais Galliera at Les Museés De La Ville De Paris (The City of Paris Fashion Museum) blessed the Kimball Art Museum in Forth Worth, TX with the Balenciaga in Black exhibit during the last quarter of the year. Balenciaga in Black also features select pieces from the Texas Fashion Collection at the University of North Texas in Denton.
In a nutshell, Balenciaga in Black bled couture 1950’s luxury high class and high dollar!
