Yesterday I posted about how fashion can inspire costume design. It seems that the reverse can be true as well. Valentino has been working with the New York City Ballet on some new designs for their Fall Gala (Which takes place tonight).
As many know Mr. Valentino has retired from the fashion industry but apparently he was not done creating his beautiful feminine silhouettes. In an article from the Huffington Post Valentino is quoted as saying “I stopped because in the `fashion world,’ I had done almost everything, and fashion was taking a direction I didn’t like, … This is a new life for me, and it’s been a very beautiful experience.”
