Episode 3: Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga: Turn the Fashion House Upside Down
Few designers in the 2000s pushed boundaries, stirred conversation, and made statements like Nicolas Ghesquière. At twenty-five years old, Nicolas took over the dormant fashion house of Balenciaga. As a young, unproven designer, no one foresaw the explosion of ingenuity that would follow. Ghesquière incorporated the influential creations of Balenciaga’s storied past, while drawing inspiration from science fiction, to produce revolutionary looks for the runway and the decade. Season after season, Ghesquière’s unique vision fused the past with the future, allowing Balenciaga to become a rising global brand in the decade.
Episode featuring: Nicolas Ghesquière, Marie-Amelie Sauvé, Inez Van Lamsweerde, Jennifer Connelly, and Vogue’s editorial team Nicole Phelps, Mark Holgate, Laird Borrelli-Persson, and Virginia Smith. Hosted by Hamish Bowles.
