 "When the lights go down and the curtain goes up at the New York City Ballet, all eyes are laser-focused on the graceful dancers. As they float across the stage, pirouetting with ease, their impeccably constructed costumes can sometimes go unnoticed—but not at tomorrow's fall gala.
An incredible amount of work goes into NYCB costumes, and they are one of the most anticipated aspects of the company's big event thanks to a handful of fashion's elite designers. On the heels of collaborations with Valentino, Prabal Gurung, Iris van Herpen, and Olivier Theyskens, this year's pieces will be made by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Mary Katrantzou, Thom Browne, and Carolina Herrera. NYCB's costume team of 17 was entrusted with the daunting task of making their designs a reality, and Racked took a visit to the workshop with less than a week until showtime".
