First I read the book on Cristobal Balenciaga; now his story continues in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. It features designer Alexander Wang’s new role as creative director of the house of Balenciaga. When Wang replaced Nicolas Ghesquiere as creative director he had big shoes to fill. But rather than get bogged down in that concept, he became a student of the master himself, Cristobal Balenciaga, in order to fulfill his destiny at the helm: “Cristobal was about finding purity in a silhouette or seam.” ~ Alexander Wang. Wang’s February debut at Balenciaga was a success and according to the article, at age 29 he seems to be on the right path to continue the legacy.
