On this day in fashion history

2011, Vogue‘s editor-at-large Hamish Bowles revealed that Cristobal Balenciaga had an unlikely first muse – his cat. “At age six, Balenciaga cut his first coat – for his cat,” said Bowles at an event to celebrate a new Balenciaga exhibition. “The cat kept moving and he got frustrated, which is, perhaps, why he always thought about moveability and comfort in his designs later on.”
