Cristobal Balenciaga started his couture house back in 1918, influencing the next century of fashion with his dramatic, sculptural silhouettes. The line stepped into the ready-to-wear arena in the nineties, reproducing classic looks for a minimalism-obsessed fashion world. Today the brand’s as hot as ever, thanks to the futuristic avant-gardism of creative director Nicolas Ghesquière. Under his influence, the fashion house has become a bellwether in the industry, influencing trends at all levels of the market.

Compensation for this fantastic internship will be provided in the form of school credit and a Balenciaga bag at the end of the internship.
