NICOLAS GHJESQUIERE AND HIS GOLDEN NEEDLE
For: Writing ASMODA
For 25 years, of the hand of Maria Rosa Salvador, there have received the trophy “The golden needle” some of the most emblematic designers from the world of the fashion. The first one was for the French designer Muriel Grateau to whom countless names have happened later, like Givenchy, Ungaro, Versace etc. This time the award has changed hand. From now on the convocante will be the Department of Culture, which has already decided this year, across an experts' Jury, that the award will be for Nicolás Ghesquire, the creative director of the House Balenciaga that from 1995 it was registering in the line of young talents capable of printing new panache on legendary houses. This young designer, who began reaching truly spectacular successes in the year 2001, could confront successfully the risk of imagining a pret to porter worthily of the name of Balenciaga. Tapeworm in his yellowish brown important hands: it had realized a "trining" with Jean Paul Gaultier and Nina Ricci and his designs were imbued with the esencialidad with the drawing of the silhouette, with a special mastery to treat the volumes.

This year the Ghesquire capacity, not of resuscitating old elegance images, but of recreating the Balenciaga finds in modern key, has had an enormous influence in the last collections and tendencies imbued with the new spirit of the designer of Guetaria. The award seems very fully deserved to us.
