The Great Designers: Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga

His entire life is dedicated to fashion. This talented man won his first placements while still at school. At the age of 19, he became an assistant designer to Gaultier and then Mugler, before a brief tenure as head designer at Trussardi. But his greatest achievement was definitely the revival of Balenciaga. Nicolas Ghesquière was appointed creative director of the fashion house in 1997 after the departure of Josuphus Thimister.

His green silk crop combat pants for S/S 2002 were the most copied garment of the season and the Neoprene mini skirts and dresses for S/S 2003 kept Balenciaga on the edge, creatively and commercially. Gormer Gucci CEO Domenico De Sole has said "Balenciaga has one fantastic asset. He's called  Nicolas Ghesquière."

This innovative designer cannot define what he does and doesn't really do, but he says it's all done to be open so people can interpret it in their own ways. His new work is always because of the previous collection, not a reaction against it, always trying to find a surprising way to go, but beneath that Nicolas Ghesquièrewants to try to say the same things.

This man never really wanted to be famous, it's not his intention. As an 80's child Mr. Ghesquièreis naturally inspired by this decade and believes that in fashion you always have to use the same thing, but you must find a new way to tell it. The designer doesn't think of a particular person while working, for him every girl who puts on Balenciaga is a muse. 

Nicolas Ghesquière is very respectful of Balenciaga because it is a house of incredible and rich history, which means he can work with a lot of freedom. He's amazed by the creativity of the founder of the fashion house, Christobal Balenciaga, and by he's inventions.

The most important lesson the great designer I am talking about ever learned is that if you want to be happy you have to keep yourself a little hidden. 

"  For me it's about evolution, not revolution."  ~ Nicolas Ghesquière

Hello dear!! I love what you're doing with your blog so far. Perhaps a suggestion? I love the pieces that you shared on this post, but maybe dig a little deeper: Talk about the detail itself, or maybe even talk about why you like these selected pieces so much? Keep up the good work!
