The Collections Department carries out intense research activity based on the exhaustive study and documentation of the Balenciaga creations belonging to its collection, as well as on obtaining greater knowledge of the personal and professional career of the couturier from Getaria.

This work is later transmitted by means of exhibitions and publications.

Thus, external researchers, academics and fashion creators are welcomed and collaborated with.




The hands that sew

Since 2014, the museum has conducted an area of research called “the hands that sew”. This project seeks to identify and make use of the contribution of the many people who worked for Balenciaga over the years, conserving the techniques used in his studios and shedding new light on aspects of his personality through the eyes of his collaborators.
