Don’t have any plans yet for the upcoming holiday period? What could be better than doing something a little different by visiting the museums of some of the great Fashion Masters while being accompanied by the house princesses? Pass on your passion for fashion to your little one while learning the secrets of your favorite designers and enjoying a fun-filled vacation together.
From Analogias, we suggest you visit three museums which showcase some iconic designers of the 20th century: Cristóbal Balenciaga, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Touring its rooms, gardens, and exhibitions allows the little ones to learn about fashion evolution over the years, make purchases, and interact with different styles.
Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum (Getaria, Basque Country)
The Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum, located in Getaria, Basque Country, exhibits more than a thousand of the artist's designs, each of which is characterized by his perfectionism and revolutionary patterns, resulting in dynamic garments that are full of volume. Nowadays, he is considered by experts to be the original architect of haute couture.
The Balenciaga Gallery also organizes workshops between June and October, where children aged 6 to 12 can explore the works of the distinguished master and test their creativity.
The Christian Dior Garden Villa (Granville, North of France)
The Christian Dior Garden-Villa in Granville in France is another important site which is a must-visit for any fashion lover. The designer's childhood home reflects the tranquillity, harmony, and balance that would inspire his later creations.
Within it, the visitor can peruse different exhibitions related to the French designer, as well as a large number of original photographs and sketches. Once your visit is over, relax with your little one in the beautiful outdoor gardens or take a walk around the quaint town of Granville.
Yves Saint Laurent Museum (Marrakech)
You can also visit the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakech, which was the refuge of the great couturier and a place of escape and inspiration for most of his collections. In the museum, there are pieces which showcase the evolution of his work between 1962 and 2002, as well as exclusive designs, private musings, and photographs of their estates in Marrakech.
One of the main attractions of this centre is its extensive library and an stunning auditorium where various projections related to the designer and his creations are held.
In addition, less than 300 feet away you can visit the beautiful Majorelle Gardens, which with its lush vegetation and the intense blue of its architectural elements, became one of the main sources of inspiration for the couturier.
