The name B
alenciaga needs little introduction. Founded by pioneering Spanish couturier Cristóbal Balenciaga, the house represents a fashion legend -- one that, according to the late fashion guru Diana Vreeland, had once caused Audrey Hepburn to "foam at the mouth", but that had languished in ignominy since the founder’s passing in 1972.
It is current helmer Nicolas Ghesquière, young but gifted when he took over in 1997, who has revived the label and brought Balenciaga back to the forefront of fashion with iconic collections season after season that sometimes employ Cristobal’s couture techniques and often pay tr
ibute to the master’s ground-breaking archive.

Described as one of the most intriguing and original designers of his generation, Ghesquière has even just been crowned The Fashion Group International's “Superstar” for 2010, joining the illustrious ranks of past winners including Oscar de laRenta, Donatella Versace and Jean Paul Gaultier.
