Haute couture techniques

Cristóbal Balenciaga’s work is characterised by experimentation and formal innovation based on the command of technique, on knowledge of the fabric, and on the evolutionary perfectioning which determined his work in a constant cycle of progression.

The course programme of Haute Couture techniques promoted by the Museum in recent years seeks to spread the values and, principally, the techniques of Cristóbal Balenciaga adapted to the context of today’s fashion. The programme takes the shape of theoretical-practical sessions with professionals highly qualified to transmit the Master’s technical legacy. These are intensive theoretical-practical sessions running in their entirety at the Museum and which completely immerse the participants in the Balenciaga universe. And new online training formulas made possible by digital tools and adjusted to current exceptional circumstances.

The program proposes two differentiated itineraries in both tailoring and fantasy techniques, and three levels of knowledge in them: initiation, intermediate and advanced.
