English National Ballet | Couture ballet
Later this month English National Ballet will auction 9 tutus made for their dancers by fashion designers. There were ten tutus, but for personal reasons Bruce Oldfield is no longer able to take part. Begoña Cao & her Bruce Oldfield tutu will be missed !
Ballet Tutus for auction
Ballet and fashion have not always been great bedfellows. Designing garments for stage that are capable of being both comfortable and allowing full freedom of movement has proved a challenge for many. These tutus are not designed to be danced in, hence the catwalk show at the Summer Party held at Kensington Palace, where they will be auctioned to raise funds for the company. To snap up your tickets, please visit the English National Ballet website.
The dancers involved are :
And the designers are :
Erdem, Agent Provocateur, Giles Deacon, Julien Macdonald, Roksanda IlIncic, House of Worth, Kinder Aggugini and Moschino.
