New York City Ballet has just announced that its fall gala will be dedicated to Valentino, who is designing costumes for three works by Peter Martins: a new ballet set to selections from Tschaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, and two pieces d’occasion created for the company’s 1988 American Music Festival.
The designer is of course working with the fabulous folks in City Ballet’s costume shop, which is run by Marc Happel. (I was just thinking of Marc and company the other day, when I was in B&J Fabrics gathering material for curtains. I wrote about the work it takes to keep these big companies’ costumes going a few years ago. Such a fun article to research.)
Tulle … dreamy.
