Gabrielle Chanel on Cristóbal Balenciaga

“[Balenciaga is] the only couturier. He is the only one who knows how to cut a fabric, and mount it and sew it with his own hands. The others are just draughtsmen.” — Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

From a placard at Balenciaga: Spanish Master, at the Queen Sophía Spanish Institute.
