For those of you who like designer fashion, you are invited to see the Balenciaga exhibition at the McCord Museum. They have some exquisite fashion on display and it is a North American exclusive premiere. The exhibition is from June 15th to October 14th, 2018.
Cristobal Balenciaga was known as the “master” of haute couture in the 1950’s and 1960’s. His innovative fashions have inspired many other designers as well.
Approximately 80 garments are on display along with hats and accessories from the Victoria and Albert museum holdings from London.
Several cultural activities are being organized to compliment the exhibition, including guided tours in English, at 12:30pm every day, or in French, at 2:15pm weekdays and 2:30pm on weekends. Group tours are also available upon reservation. In addition, one of the Museum’s summer day camp themes is “Fashion Your Own Superhero.”
