Balenciaga : Spanish Master

Laurel was asked by Forbes reporter about town Hannah Elliott to photograph the press preview of the soon to be open to the public Balenciaga : Spanish Master Exhibit at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute. 

The pictures Laurel took were gorgeous!  Of course after looking through them all our absolute favorites were of the magnificent hats that Cristobal Balenciaga designed himself.

Ghost Of Ivy

(above images from style rookie)

As most of you know Laurel and I have been fans of Tavi's blog Style Rookie since before we started I Love Factory two years ago.  She is a constant source of inspiration and we are always so excited to see what she does with her I Love Factory pieces.  It was an honor when we had the opportunity to meet her in person this past February at our Eternal Coronation presentation during New York Fashion week.  Tavi you RULE!  Keep being you, and doing what you do.  : )
