Are you a fan of Balenciaga handbags?

I am not female, so I do not have an actual need for a handbag. Nor do I have a particular interest in handbags. However, I must say that I have have developed an appreciation for Balenciaga handbags today. I was doing a bit of research for a new group that I wanted to set up here on the Fashion Industry Network.

Yes, you may have guessed, I was creating a Balenciaga Group.

Anyway, if you are not very familiar with Balenciaga handbags, I suggest you check them out at

The first time I had heard about Balenciaga, was from my mom , who wore his gorgeous dresses in the 1950's.
The original Cristobal Balenciaga dresses.
I wish I had those dresses now.

What was Vreeland's famous quote about one of those Balenicaga shows?

'One never knew what one was going to see at a Balenciaga opening. One fainted. It was possible to blow up and die. I remember at one show in the early Sixties . . . Audrey Hepburn turned to me and asked why I wasn't frothing at the mouth at what I was seeing. I told her I was trying to act calm and detached because, after all, I was a member of the press. Across the way, Gloria Guinness was sliding out of her chair on to the floor. Everyone was going up in foam and thunder. We didn't know what we were doing, it was so glorious.'

Maryanne - Yeah, that would have been great to still have those dresses. What a wonderful piece of fashion history. That is nice that you have that special memory from your mom.
