The original drama series Cristóbal Balenciaga is inspired by the life and legacy of the Spanish designer from Guetaria and also one of the most iconic fashion designers of all time.

Cristóbal Balenciaga begins when the designer presents his first Parisian Haute Couture collection in 1937. He leaves behind a successful career in his ateliers in Madrid and San Sebastian, where he dressed the Spanish elite and aristocracy. However, the designs that had set the trend in Spain do not quite work in the refined fashion empire that Paris has become, where Chanel, Dior, and Givenchy set the standard for Haute Couture. Driven by his obsession for control in all aspects of his life, Cristóbal Balenciaga will define his style and ultimately become one of the most important designers of all time.

The original drama series ‘Cristóbal Balenciaga’ will be available to watch from January 19 via Disney+.
