Balenciaga gets his own museum and deserves it..

Balenciaga achieved what is considered to be his most important contribution to the world of fashion: a new silhouette for women.

A true fashion innovator, Cristobal Balenciaga radically altered the fashionable silhouette of women in the mid-twentieth century. With the methodical skill of an expert tailor, he created garments of fluidity and grace. Unlike many couturiers, Balenciaga was able to drape, cut, and fit his own muslin patterns, known as toiles. He was respected throughout the fashion world for both his knowledge of technique and construction, and his unflinching perfectionism.

Today, the 7th of June 2011 will be the official openings day for the museum, totally devoted to one Spanish designer genius.
The museum is based in his Birth town Getaria.
