PARIS/FRANCE: Upon our looking back at the famouse Haute Couture houses, we are remembering this history about BALENCIAGA in Kulturkompasset from 2012:

During the long periode when Musee Galliera, – the fashion museum in Paris,- has been locked for renovation.

The managemant has done their outmost to give the large fashion audience other possibilities to enjoy the enormouse collection of fashion items belonging to Musee Galleria, –

During that periode Musée Galliera in 2012 also presented Balenciaga at Les Docks, based on a private Balenciaga collection.

At Les Docks several exhibitions, ws to be found:

And at the same time also a collection by Comme des Garcons, called WHITE DREAMS, was being presented at LES DOCKS.

At this area also other fashion activities has found their home, such as the school, Institut Francaise de la Mode. – IFM established in the same building at 34 Quai de Austerlitz. 75013 Paris, wonderfully situated on the Left side of the Seinen River.

At Les Docks, more than seventy costumes and items of clothing are displayed alongside so me forty haute couture coats and dresses designed by Balenciaga from 1937 to 1968, taken from the Galliera’s collections or on loan fromMaison Balenciaga.

Accessories, photographs and sketches as well as books on art and costumes complete this exhibit which testifies in equal measure to the designer’s passion for history and his consummate skill at a trade first learnt at his mother’s knee.

It is understandable and remarkable that the city of Paris is building up acitivities in this area, which is quite centrally located in Paris, with easy transport Metro no 14 to Gare de Lyon and other to Gare d´Austerlitz, and only a few minutes walk by the left River side.
