Lagerfeld’s Designs Take Centre Stage At The English National Ballet – 18/6/09

Culture and couture are once again hand-in-hand, as Karl Lagerfeld’s costumes adorned the stars of the English National Ballet's centenary celebration of the Ballet Russes.

Continuing Coco Chanel’s tradition, Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, designed show-stopping costumes for the principal performers in two dances, The Dying Swan and Apollo.

For the principal dancer of The Dying Swan, Elena Glurdjidze, Lagerfeld created an impressive tutu using ostrich and other bird feathers. All eyes were on Elena’s tutu during her four-minute solo performance, which was originally created for the legendary Anna Pavlova. While in Apollo, the legendary outfits were inspired by the fashions of Ancient Greece.

As always, Lagerfeld’s designs were well received and deserved a standing ovation. To read more about this performance, click here.
