Saint Louis Fashion Fund And Saint Louis Ballet Team Up For A Mashup Of Ballet And Fashion

An exciting collaboration with the Saint Louis Fashion Fund kicks of Saint Louis Ballet’s 2016-2017 season, with a performance of “Vision: Where Ballet + Fashion Meet,” an original composition choreographed by two of New York City’s most impressive choreographers: Tom Gold and Emery LeCrone, in addition to Saint Louis Ballet artistic director Gen Horiuchi.

The performance will feature costumes designed by three emerging designers as curated by the SLFF: Jordana Warmflash, a Washington University graduate whose NOVIS line was a Saint Louis Fashion Fund 2015 Caleres Emerging Design finalist; Emily Brady Koplar, whose Wai Ming brand was a finalist in 2014 and is one of the inagural six designers in the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator; and Hillary Taymour, who first attracted attention for her Collina Strada line of leather handbags and satchels.

Tickets are available now.
