“A woman has no need to be perfect or even beautiful to wear my dresses. The dress will do all that for her.”
Do you wear a dress or does the dress define you? I think Balenciaga has a point above in that a dress can also elevate a person. It goes both ways – when someone wears something glamorous, she feels more glamorous. This feeling contributes to an overall confidence boost that shines through. I know that I feel completely chic and go the extra mile if I put on an evening gown. Once I slip it on, I feel like a more elegant version of myself. It’s fascinating to see these examples of this master couturier’s work. I’d love to see the Balenciaga fashion exhibition at the V&A museum; a collection of his photographs, sketches, and samples are on display until February 2018. After all, he designed the shift, baby doll, and tunic which were completely innovative when they were introduced. It will be interesting to see what dresses will continue to make us feel beautiful in the future.
Happy Halloween friends! I hope you wear something fun for the holiday!
