Fashion in Art: Balenciaga's inspiration through Spanish works
“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art”, Oscar Wilde
Would you like to join us on a journey through the evolution of fashion?
Kings and queens, painters and socialites, saints and sinners, madonnas and courtesans followed the fashion trends of their day, reflecting the evolution of social attitudes and personal ideals. In its turn, fashion sometimes even influenced the styles of the painters. Through the paintings in the major Spanish museums we can discover magnificent brocades, eccentric shapes, austere attires, fantastic headgear and outrageous innovations, from the Middle Ages to the 17th century Spanish works by Zurbarán and Velázquez, from romantic depictions of 19th century ladies to the creations of one of the world’s most revered couturiers, Cristóbal Balenciaga, who drew his inspiration from the great tradition of Spanish painting.
