Martha Graham uses a lot of modern, elegant costumes in her productions. Some were designed by her, but also by designers like Halston and Calvin Klein...and sometimes by interesting artists like Isamu Noguchi.


















*sorry, i don't have sources for the photos...they should be easy to find on google

im sorry,i made a mistake in my last post:nr.7 is svetlana zakharova,the next margot fonteyn ...


nr.1+2,two beautiful dancers:natalia dudinskaya and anna pavlova.
judging from their pictures ,they were graceful and beautiful dancers.i love vintage ballet costumes.
the balletts russes dancers for example wore customes that seem more extraordinary and imaginative to me than modern dance wear.ive saved several pictures of pavlova and karsavina on my computer,perhaps ill post some of them later.

then some rehearsal pictures.i love the clothes dancers wear during rehearsals:
tamara rojo
yuan yuan tan
polina semionova

nr.9 is by bruce monk
nr.10 by weiferd watts

aquascutum has some fantastic tulle ballerina inspired things for a/w 2005. very prima ballerina...

Oh I love all of them!

I did classical Ballet for 5 years, then 5 years Jazz Dance. Ah those were the days...*sigh*

Thanks somnambule, I'm so happy you liked it...for me it's always interesting to see what dancers wear in real life! Actually, I think that's where a lot of my fashion inspiration usually comes from...mostly dancers and dance teachers I knew years ago.

I agree, she's very elegant! I did a quick search and found the photo...the city is Buenos Aires. Here's the link:

Oh, I love your new photos...you have an amazing collection of images.
