Ballet and Fashion exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, is a harmonious blend of two amazing art forms, showcasing the work of some of the world’s most famous fashion designers. Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Akira Isogawa and Collette Dinnigan have created exquisite ballet costumes for various ballet productions around the world, beautifully exhibited at the NGV.
‘Tutu for the Australian Ballet’ was one of my favourites, but stealing the show was Giles Deacon’s ‘Tutu for the Black Swan’. It was the first costume on display upon entering the exhibition and definitely the one I secretly wished I could wear, as I imagined being lost in the magic of ballet.
Mesmerising displays of ballet costumes can usually only be enjoyed at ballet productions and the detail and work that go into them, are often difficult to appreciate from your theatre seat. At the NGV, some of the world’s most stunning ballet costumes can be admired up close, for all fashion and dance lovers to revel in.
National Gallery of Victoria Ballet and Fashion, captures the beauty and grace of an effortless ballerina and the exhibition forms part of The Australian Ballet’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
