Fort Worth DC Special Museum Tour


Join the ASID Texas Chapter Fort Worth Design Community in a guided group tour of the first ever clothing only exhibition taking place at the Kimball Art Museum.

Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895–1972) is often called “the couturier’s couturier”—the fashion designer revered by all other fashion designers. From his first runway collection, in 1937, through the closure of his Paris salon, in 1968, Balenciaga’s clients were among the most influential trendsetters of the day.

This autumn the Kimbell Art Museum is partnering with the Palais Galliera, the distinguished fashion museum of the city of Paris, to present Balenciaga in Black, an exhibition of more than one hundred pieces from the collections of the Galliera and the archives of the Maison Balenciaga.
