Lacroix For La Source
French couturier Christian Lacroix is exhibiting the costumes he created for the ballet 'La Source' that was staged in Paris last autumn. The exhibit will open on June 16 and continue till December 31 at Centre National du Costume de Scène et de la Scénographie at Moulins, near Paris. Apart from the costumes, it will also trace the process behind their creation, from the drawing to the fabrication.
Lacroix worked with an array of different materials for the outfits, including Japanese organza for the tutus, vintage saris for tunics and loose pants and around 2 million Swarovski crystals. This ballet is centered around a princess who falls in love with a hunter and thus the costumes of the 2 main characters, Djemil and Nouredda, form the central part of the exhibition.
It is no surprise that this exhibit is highly awaited as it is more than just a fashion presentation. It also showcases the various sources of inspiration behind the collection, giving the audience a unique insight into the mind of this world renowned designer.
