Demna Invites Guests to NYSE for Balenciaga Spring 2023 Show

·1 min read

Demna is bringing Balenciaga to New York City for the first time since 2003 during Nicolas Ghesquière's tenure, inviting guests to the New York Stock Exchange for the house's Spring 2023 collection.

Prior to the show, the designer sent out invites in the form of faux stacks of cash, following unused iPhone 6s that went viral last season. The fake hundred-dollar bills indicate the details of the presentation, with the text reading: "BALENCIAGA SPRING 23 SHOW." A Balenciaga-branded currency strap wraps the bills.

In addition to the invites, Demna projected Balenciaga's logo onto some of the Big Apple's iconic landmarks, including Madison Square Park, New York Public Library, Columbus Circle and Union Square.
