Nicolas Ghesquiere on Balenciaga's Size Issues

Nicolas Ghesquiere: "A Good Cut Should Come in Big Sizes, Too"

Nicolas Ghesquiere admits that Balenciaga "had a size issue" when he first started designing for the house 15 years ago. Now, he wants to make sure that the cuts of his innovative, highly regarded clothing can be worn by women of all shapes and sizes.

"We started very skinny, it's true," Ghesquiere said in an interview with The Sunday Times. "Strangely, we didn't have fit models at all to begin with — just to give you an idea of the size of the company. So we did fittings on the girls at the studio and they were often quite petite. I had a tendency to think good cut and small size, but a good cut should come in big sizes, too. That's what I want to focus on — it's the cut, not the sizing, and if people see that they can wear something in a big size, then I did my job."
