Cristobal Balenciaga Museoa - Guetaria, Spain

The year 1987 marked the 50th anniversary of the Balenciaga Fashion House in Paris, that was somehow the begining of the foundation of the same name, but it was ont until 2002 that the idea of a museum to house and display the collections of the Balenciaga House, could take shape and eventually become a reality.

The website is a vey good place to get to know the personality of the couturier and admire some of his creations. 

It is also a tool where to start research abut the house history, collections and other museological work, i.e., the conservation department working on restoration of some of the pieces they store in its ateliers as seen in this video.
