Last week, I was blessed with the chance to see the Balenciaga and Spain exhibit & hear the genius of Hamish Bowles! I was blown away.impressed and in awe. It is a delight to him speak – he is so passionate about fashion, I must say I left sincerely inspired. Mr. Bowles had so much knowledge and understanding of Balenciaga and his work. I learned that much of Balenciaga inspiration came his native country, Spain, his faith in religion and the intricate costumes of the Matador. Balenciaga created truly beautiful clothes. This exhibit has undoubtedly become my favorite. I was lucky enough to snap a few pictures as I viewed Balenciaga and Spain. I do hope you like what you see and do visit the de Young before it leaves!
