Ballet and Fashion

Recommended Posts

The Fashion Insitute of Technology Museum in New York (highly recommended to visit if you're ever in NY) has an exhibition about ballet and fashion at the moment. They have started posting videos of presentations at a symposium last month that are really interesting.  Here's the link to the one on Margot Fonteyn, and from there you can move on to Taglioni and Balanchine.

“Enter the Ballerina: Margot Fonteyn and Fashion, 1930s–1960s”

Thank you so much for the YouTube link, Katherine.


There is also a good article about this exhibition with some lovely photos (including Fonteyn's Aurora costume) in this month's Dancing Times.
