Making a difference

Every person is a world. That’s why from the beginning we were clear that go Basquing would be a tailor-made DMC boutique. Our groups of guests are united by friendships, hobbies, sports, jobs…
Recently, we were lucky to welcome a couple united for the love of art and beautiful things. It was such a pleasure meeting them! They came from the United States to visit the north of Spain. A few years ago they were with us in Andalusia, hand in hand with our partner Unforgettable Spain.
One of the days we went to the Balenciaga Museum, accompanied by Contxu Uzkudun. She learned and trained with Pilar Usarraga, a disciple of Cristóbal Balenciaga. Contxu explained, first hand, the sense of this museum and its pieces, as well as the essence of this Master of Haute Couture,  international reference among the greatest designers.
Currently, Contxu also owns a workshop and various stores in San Sebastian, Bilbao and Barcelona. He was kind enough to show us her latest collection with her characteristic stamp of timeless shapes, first quality textures and materials as well as her perfection in the finishing of the garments.
In the fishing village where Cristóbal Balenciaga was born, you can still see the women sewing the nets at the piers. The boats unloaded the fish which our guests enjoyed in Elkano (a Michelin star), served in a family environment.
The visit couldn’t finish without a shopping afternoon, tribute to our Basque designers, delving into the current trends as well as our traditions.
If I had to summarize the day in a few words, I would say: smiles and delicacy. One of those days that leaves its mark.
