I have really enjoyed the ballet trend feature on the Lorraine Kelly show yesterday morning (16th March 2011). The looks that Mark Heyes has put together makes it very wearable in everyday life BUT I prefer the beautiful chiffon and tulle dresses and cute cardigans featured in the opening video for the fashion segment.
Check out the whole ballet fashion item video here:
I think that the growth in this trend, which has been triggered by the 2011 film Black Swan, shows just how much women want to return to the world of whimsical fantasy of their childhood – lets face it, every girl wanted to be a ballerina or fairy princess at some point in their youth!
As a costume-maker and tutu enthusiast, I’ve never really let go of this childish ideal but now everyone can inject a bit of fantasy into their lives – even if it is only a pink floral headband or floaty skirt. And those of you who already have commissioned a Cassiefairy Tutu will have another use for it as a fashion item this season!
