At seventeen he[*Balenciaga] went to Biarritz, across the border, to acquire French. By 1913, at age eighteen, he was learning the women's wear trade in San Sebastian, in a luxury shop, Louvre, where he became adept at fitting ladies and finding gowns for their personal requirements. Later, experts as well as customers marveled at the speed with which he went about his work. Was he learning the trade in San Sebastian "and" in a luxury shop, Louvre??? I can't figure out the correlation among "San Sebastian", "in a luxury shop," and "Louvre." Is there a luxury shop in Louvre? That "Louvre" is the museum in Paris or is there a city or town Louvre in Spain, too? If "Louvre" is the museum how could he do fitting ladies or finding gowns there which seems like preparing a fashion show.
