Cristbal Balenciaga made his name in Paris in the 1940s and 1950s in the golden age of haute couture. He was hailed by Coco Chanel as the only true couturier among us, and his clients included Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duchess of Windsor.

It features an extraordinary selection of the most representative pieces from the Museums collection, and includes four essays written by specialists on Balenciagas work.
