Summary

The publication of this book coincides with an exceptional exhibition that brings together creations from three of the greatest designers of our timeCristóbal Balenciaga, Philippe Venet, and Hubert de Givenchyat the Ch'teau de Haroué, the sumptuous eighteenth-century palace built by the Princes of Beauvau-Craon. The collection of evening dresses, presented in this architectural jewel and paragon of art de vivre showcases Hubert de Givenchys passion for elegance and the heritage of France. The extraordinary gowns were selected by Hubert de Givenchy, President of the Cristóbal Balenciaga Foundation, along with Philippe Venet, and the Princess of Beauvau-Craon. Not only did the great Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga create a style, but he also invented a technique. He was an architect of haute couture and has had a prevailing influence upon the international world of fashion. His trademarks were his astounding creativity, exceptional command of tailoring, and timeless style. Philippe Venet has experience and respect for the traditions of haute couture, but distinguishes himself with his use of colors, and his innovative and imaginative tailoring. Hubert de Givenchy, the aristocrat of haute couture, still inspires the fashion world with his sense of perfection. He initiated and was actively involved in the creation of this luxurious work, which is a tribute to the subtle harmony between haute couture creations and exceptional locations. Christiane de Nicolay-Mazery, author and friend of Hubert de Givenchy and Philippe Venet, presents these legendary dresses displayed at the Ch'teau de Haroué, such as Queen Fabiola of Belgiums wedding dress created by Balenciaga and the unforgettable black dress created by Givenchy for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys.
