You may already know that life inside the New York City Ballet can be a bit hectic, but did you also know that it's seriously stylish, too?
In honor of its annual fashion-inspired Fall Gala, Fashionista reported on Friday that City Ballet will collaborate on costumes with a range of designers including Sarah Burton, Mary Katrantzou, Thom Browne, Carolina Herrera and Valentino Garavan for the event on September 23rd. The designers will pair up with a specific choreographer to create looks for each number.
These designers join a special list of fashion heavyweights to have collaborated with the Sarah Jessica Parker-hosted event. City Ballet has previously worked with Valentino as well as industry sweethearts Rodarte and Prabal Gurung (to name a few.) However, these designs could very well be the most highly anticipated. After all, Alexander McQueen has served as inspiration for costumes in the past and Burton won over audiences everywhere when she designed the wedding gowns for Kate Middleton, who is just as elegant as any ballerina we've ever seen. Additionally, McQueen's retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was one of the top ten most visited exhibitions in the museum's history, proving that New Yorkers especially are fans.
So rejoice, lovers of dance and fashion. The Fall Gala is sure to be just as stylish as any runway at Fashion Week (and definitely less expensive to get in, too.)
