Dancer Inspired Styles
it's no secret that I've been quite enthralled with ballet and dance inspired styles as of late... from tulle and lace to the minimal, draped and elegantly proportioned designs (I've been seeing lots of jersey and stretchy fabrics) that remind me of the dance studio, I've noticed quite a few things on the runways and in general recently that have really inspired me.

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

(all photos from http://www.vogue.co.uk)








from emma cook, this reminded me a lot of modern dance...



and from preen...



calvin klein...the plain turtleneck paired the little sheer chiffon skirt. sort of reminds me of a ballet wraparound skirt.

Brilliant topic utopia! I love ballet and dance inspired styles so much. I love the looks you posted

A few from Costello Tagliapietra...I felt like most of the collection was dance inspired...so elegant.

with this I've seen a lot of really natural colours...a bit muted. grey, black, dark blue, pale blue, salmon pink, and so on.
not structured...but nonetheless close fitting and clingy in places.

more (from http://www.style.com - all a/w 2005)

costello tagliapietra



imitation of christ... (nevermind the awful boots...I used to have a dance dress just like this )



vera wang (who has designed a fair few figure skating outfits in her time - this dress reminds me of one of them)...

that's so funny we both posted looks from this collection in regards to dance styles - I couldn't decide which ones to post I agree, it was a very dance oriented collection.
