Cristòbal Balenciaga Museo | Transmissions

After two years of hard work, the “Transmissions – Heritage and New Creations” project, promoted by the Cristobal Balenciaga Museum in Getaria, comes to an end, bringing together professors and students from the most prestigious international fashion design schools.


For Accademia Costume & Moda, the only Italian school selected for this important project, the students of the Master in Haute Couture, Fashion Design (AY 2019/2020 – 2020/2021) participated, followed by Santo Costanzo, Director of the Master and Coordinator of the Fashion Department by ACM.

The challenge for the classes was to create a personal Haute Couture collection faithful to the techniques and biographical context of Cristóbal Balenciaga, focusing on one of his distinctive themes: the introduction of new and revolutionary silhouettes.

The exhibition presents a selection of 41 students from the 500 participants, representing the dialogue between the heritage preserved by the museum and the talent of a new generation of creators.

The following have been selected by ACM: Chiharu Egami (Master Alta Moda, Fashion Design A.Y. 2019/2020); Carolina Zecchino and Manav Sriprakash (Master Alta Moda, Fashion Design A.Y. 2020/2021).

For the creation of her outfit, Carolina had the honor of collaborating with Italian Converter, a Made in Italy company that provided the particular fabric necessary for her vision of the modern Balenciaga.

In the 2019-2021 edition, the schools participating in the Project are: Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture (Espoo, Finlandia), Accademia Costume & Moda (Roma, Italia), ArtEZ University of the Arts (Arnhem, Olanda), Bilbao International Art & Fashion (Bilbao, Paesi Baschi), Central Saint Martins – University of the Arts London (London, England), Iceland University of the Arts (Reykjavik, Island ), IED Madrid (Madrid, Spagna), Osaka Institute of Fashion (Osaka, Giappone), Parsons School of Design (New York, Stati Uniti), Kyoto Seika University (Kyoto, Giappone), Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Arts ( Ramat Gan, Israele) e Royal Danish Academy (Copenhagen, Danimarca).
