Balenciaga's Pre-Fall 2010 collection stays true to Nicolas Ghesquiere's aesthetic. The silhouettes and colors branch from his older collections yet every piece is modern. There are plenty of separates, very wearable. You can deconstruct or layer up.
The design of the dress should follow the proportion of the body. The shorter the person, the shorter the dress and vice versa. Heels can be worn to alter the height to the proportion. No matter how intricate the design, it must follow the shape of the body
