'Haute couture is like an orchestra, whose conductor is Balenciaga. We, other couturiers, are the musicians and we follow the direction he gives - Christian DiorThe godfather of conceptual design, a master of shape, a true fashion game changer - all are accolades bestowed upon one of the most interesting, venerated, and iconic couturiers of the twentieth century: Cristobal Balenciaga. His pureness of line, the comfort of his garments, and innovative work with textiles, color, and volume made a huge impact on twentieth-century fashion, with creations such as the babydoll, balloon, and sack dresses still influencing fashion today.

Through stunning images and captivating text, Little Book of Balenciaga depicts the work and life of Balenciaga the couturier. Fashion historian Emmanuelle Dirix examines his legacy both through tracing Maison's artistic direction after his death, and the generations of designers influenced by the master himself.
