Mary Katrantzou for the New York City Ballet





This year, Mary Katrantzou will create custom designed costumes for the New York City Ballet’s Fall Gala opening night performance on September 23 alongside Carolina Herrera, Valentino Garavani, Thom Browne, and Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton. Mary Katrantzou worked together with resident choreographer Justin Peck to create the ideas for the looks, which are inspired by her second Resort offering for Spring Summer 2015. In order to emphasize the dancers movement and physiques, Mary wanted to create something subtle and agile to evoke a certain emotion and mimic Justin’s clean choreography. Her designs act as a second skin for the dancers. For the Prime Male dancer, Mary has created a lace bodysuit, while the Prima ballerina’s costume exudes an ethereal air with an added translucent tulle skirt, the dancers will also wear pigmented undergarments for a touch of colour. Here, a sketch of the costumes portrays her delicate designs.

It cost half a million dollars to create these fabulous costumes by Edith Head for “What a Way to Go” (1964) with Shirley MacLaine, Dean Martin, Paul Newman, Robert Cummings, Gene Kelly, Dick Van Dyke, Robert Mitchum.

Lingerie Française Exhibition is going on now in Tokyo! Vintage lingerie from 1800’s to the present. 

While I couldn’t be there to see it myself, I sent my amazing father in Tokyo to check it out for me. Thanks Dad!!
