One of fashion’s most iconic designers is creating costumes for the New York City Ballet‘s Fall Gala in September, and we’ve got all the deets.
Valentino Garavani will design costumes for three performances. According to the press release, these include “a new ballet set to selections from Tschaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, and two rarely performed pieces d’occasion created for NYCB’s 1988 American Music Festival –- Sophisticated Lady… and Not My Girl, a pas de deux inspired by, and set to music composed by Fred Astaire“.
To top it all off, dancers will perform George Balanchine’s Rubies as a nod to Valentino’s signature red hue.
