With Paris Fashion Week Men’s having only just come to an end, Balenciaga has just revealed that the luxury label will make a long awaited return to Couture Week. The house hasn’t created a couture collection since 1968, when Cristóbal Balenciaga shut his atelier, but this year Artistic Director Demna Gvasalia will make his couture debut for the Fall 2020 season.

In an exclusive interview with Vogue, the designer spoke about the importance of couture to the house of Balenciaga, saying that, “For me, couture is an unexplored mode of creative freedom and a platform for innovation. It not only offers another spectrum of possibilities in dressmaking.” Since he was appointed at the label in 2015, Gvasalia has brought Balenciaga into the spotlight through innovative collections, unconventional designs and more, and has rebuilt the brand into one of the largest names in the current scene. Taking on couture will be a new step for the Georgian designer, and we have no idea what to expect.

Demna Gvasalia’s first couture collection for Balenciaga will be revealed in July for the Fall/Winter 2020. For more fashion news, Jean Paul Gaultier reveals this couture collection will be his last.
