Balenciaga in New York
Leave it to the team of Vogue creative director Hamish Bowles and fashion designer Oscar de la Renta to up the cachet of the late Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895–1972) this fall. Bowles and de la Renta are behind what is certain to be the coming season’s show-stopping fashion exhibition, "Balenciaga: Spanish Master," Nov. 19, 2010–Feb. 19, 2011.
The survey is not at the Metropolitan Museum, however, but rather at the Queen Sofía Spanish Institute on Park Avenue, opposite the Armory. Her Majesty Queen Sofía of Spain is slated to open the show.
