A Night at the Opera



Enjoy this Balenciaga fashion show -- the first part is 1965, the second part is 1952.

It's funny how so few of these styles feature sleeves. Balenciaga loved sleeves, and frequently started with the sleeve as his inspiration. Most of these styles are sleeveless, which I find fascinating. Everything is, of course, very tasteful, since Balenciaga had no tolerance for a) vulgarity and b) bad taste.

How much tulle do you suppose that 1952 gown took?
