English National Ballet’s fashion for fundraising

For anyone that watched the compelling BBC 4 documentary on the English National Ballet earlier this year, you’ll fully appreciate that ballet is an expensive business, and it’s a constant struggle to fund their show-stopping productions.

So it was with pleasure that I read about ENB’s latest creative idea for fundraising. They have collaborated with some of the country’s top fashion designers to create a series of exquisite costumes, to be auctioned at a summer event at Kensington Palace.  Tickets can be bought here. Vogue has featured some of the costumes, and they are just as beautiful as I hoped they would be. Swoon!

My two favourites are the dainty number by Giles Deacon (above) and dramatically elegant design from Roksanda Illincic (below).
