2001 Balenciaga/Ghesquiere Rare Vogue Magazine Pick Vintage

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquiere 2001 Spring/Summer runway collection. This dress was photographed on the catwalk in white. The one being offered here is in the black and white combination.

This dress is a Ghesquiere creation that is now quite rare and was touted several years ago by Vogue magazine as "most definitely" a collector piece! Designer Nicolas Ghesquière's style has proven to be highly individualized and independent of conventional categorization as he demonstrates in this collection. His clothing features fabric that is manipulated, twisted, pulled, gathered and pleated with hanging strands of adornments loosely interrupting the fluidity of the silhouette.

Bias cut 1920's chemise style dress of 100% white silk with upper bodice fashioned in white silk t-shirt fabric with body of dress constructed of white silk charmeuse. Both front and back of right side designed with white accordian pleated ruffles; back adorned with long white strands of faux pearls at shoulder. Front and back of dress are identical.
