Dimensions : Equivalent French Size 34/36 Front height 129 cm Back height 120 cm Collar 11 cm Back cleavage 22 cm Chest 87 cm Waist 63 cm Hips 85 cm Unanimously recognized as the couturier of the couturiers, Cristobal Balenciaga participates to radically transform the feminine silhouette in the years 1950 and 1960. The only couturier to whom the New-Look of Christian Dior does not put Balenciaga in the shade, presents its revolutionary and avant-garde Tonneau line in 1947. Next are the balloon jacket (1953), the tunic dress (1955), the sac dress (1957), the Baby doll dress (1958), counting among its most innovative creations. He is the first couturier to use gazar that will allow him to accentuate architecturally his sculptural cuts which he is known as the master. He dresses the Queens of Spain, Belgium, the Duchess of Windsor and the Princess Grace of Monaco who is his muse and his most famous foil. As often in his work, it is the curves of the back that retains all the attention of the designer as in the model presented.
