Fashion Week Trend #1: Modern Ballerina
The catwalk is covered in loads of pastel blossoms. Fine shoes with satin ribbons are wrapping themselves around the model’s ankles for a soft-footed appearance. Indeed, the attendees of the Dior show must have felt like part of a dance performance. The dark parquet, the strong eye makeup and the flowy black dresses reminded of a scene in Black Swan. At the same time, some of the models were wearing white gowns and floated over the catwalk like pixies in soft beige tulle dresses. Dance and fashion have a close relationship – so Maria Grazia Chiuri banned tight corsets and stiff materials from this collection and concentrated on flowing materials, which are often found in modern dance. Also, the Japanese label Chika Kisada oriented towards dance for his spring collection and showed the classic ballet slippers in different colors and patterns.
