Cristóbal Balenciaga spent his childhood in the Spanish region of Gipuzkoa. His widowed mother was a seamstress and raised Cristóbal on her own. This is where he gained his first experience in fashion and despite a lack of formal training, Cristóbal successfully launched his first boutique in San Sebastián in 1919. The boutique quickly became popular amongst the Spanish aristocracy and even the royal family and stores were soon opened in Madrid and Barcelona. During the Spanish Civil War Cristóbal was forced to relocate to Paris where the boutique reopened in 1937 and officially inaugurated the House of Balenciaga.
