Ballet and Fashion  exhibition celebrats the creative collaboration between dance and design featuring ballet costumes by some of the world’s top designers, including Giles Deacon (Swan Lake for English National Ballet 2010), Christian Lacroix (Gâité Parisienne for American Ballet Theatre 1988), Akira Isogawa (Romeo & Juliet for The Australian Ballet 2011) and Collette Dinnigan and Easton Pearson (Tutu for The Australian Ballet 2002).

“Ballet & Fashion will excite fans of both the stage and the runway with many of fashion’s biggest labels and ballet’s most revered performances represented” said Tony Ellwood, Director, NGV.

Art and fashion have a long and dynamic history of association. Ballet & Fashion highlights the signature styles of leading fashion designers, the success of multidisciplinary collaboration and the challenges designers face when creating pieces that must withstand the rough and tumble of performance.

Ballet & Fashion is part of NGV Summer, an exciting program of exhibitions and events at the NGV encouraging visitors to engage with and participate in great art over the warmer months. Visit ngv.vic.gov.au for more information. 

Dance companies represented in Ballet & Fashion include The Australian Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Phillip Adams BalletLab, English National Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, Sydney Dance Company and Vienna State Ballet. The exhibition will also depict its ballet costumes in motion through video footage from performances including The Australian Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet and Phillip Adams BalletLab’s Aviary: A Suite for the Bird.
