Showcasing Fashion Genius as Nicolas Ghesquiere Leaves Balenciaga

— November 6, 2012 — Fashion
It seems to be the end of an era as Nicolas Ghesquiere leaves Balenciaga after reigning supreme as creative director for 15 years.

During his time at the historic fashion house, the French designer spearheaded the brand's collective genius with season after season of critical acclaim. Deemed "an incomparable creative talent" by François Pinault, founder of PPR, the designer's surprising exit from the brand has left the fashion industry in a speculative state.

This compiled list showcases Nicolas Ghesquiere's creative brilliance throughout his time at the Basque fashion house. It entices with its display of design genius characterized by iconic structural garments, sleek overcoats and statement shoes. His tireless quest to keep the legacy of Cristóbal Balenciaga alive has made his creations some of the most coveted by world-renowned editors.
