Balenciaga was founded by Cristóbal Balenciaga in 1918, but rose to fame in the 1950s, where it brought a new feminity and freedom to the women's fashions of the time. Today, Balenciaga is bang up to date and produces a range of shoes, bags, boots, jewellery and ready to wear fashions including tops, shirts, jackets and coats. The shoes pictured to the right are no longer available (sorry) but are a great example of Balenciaga's innovation. They were debuted for the Autumn 2007 season, and were nickname the "IT" as they have something of a Microsoft thing going on. With so many colours - they'll go with anything!
Some of the Balenciaga designs are truly beautiful. Take, for example, the Balenciaga pillar box red bag pictured to the left and right. It is such bold and beautiful colour, but also look at the attention to detail that is clearly highlighted in the photo to the right. Clearly, no expense has been spared in this bag of the highest quality.
Many celebrities enjoy wearing Balenciaga designs, including Mandy Moore and Sienna Miller.
