    More than 100 items including dresses, gowns, suits, jackets and accessories -- all in black -- designed by famed Spanish designer Cristobal Balenciaga will be showcased in an exhibit at a Fort Worth museum.

    "Balenciaga in Black," which opens Sunday at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, focuses on the designer's artistry in working with black fabrics, embroideries and lace. The items were created by the late designer in the prime of his career -- from the 1940s through the 1960s.

    Museum director Eric M. Lee says Balenciaga "is among the most influential fashion designers of modern times."

    Complementing the exhibit will be another featuring more than 85 works by the Spanish artist Goya. The exhibit, "Goya in Black and White," features his work in back ink on white paper.
