Moschino designs tutu for English National Ballet

Moschino and Erdem are among the designers putting their stamp on the traditional tutu for the ENB

Captialising on our obsession with all things ballet (we’re calling it Black Swan-chic here at MC towers), Erdem and Moschino are among the top designers putting their spin on the tutu in a new collaboration with the English National Ballet.

In an attempt to revamp the ballet for a more style-conscious audience, the English National Ballet is holding a fundraising catwalk show where a host of big names including Giles and Julien MacDonald have each re-designed the iconic dance costume – to be modelled on ballet dancers and sold live at public auction.

Held on 29th June, in one of London’s most glorious outdoor settings, The Orangery in Kensington Palace, it looks set to be a fabulous evening of ballet, fashion and fundraising.

Moschino have designed a tutu inspired by the quintessentially English pearly kings and queens, with a black tutu and heavily embellished mother of pearl buttons incorporating the Moschino symbols, M, the heart and the peace sign.

‘I am delighted to collaborate with English National Ballet. This is a very exciting and creative initative’, says Rossella Jardini, creative director of Moschino.

Tickets for the summer party are on sale now and cost £150. To book visit www.ballet.org.uk
