To open the season, BALLET PHILIPPINES partnered with the FASHION DESIGN COUNCIL OF THE PHILIPPINES (FDCP) for a visual journey informed by the season’s theme. With grace, movement, and the enduring beauty of ballet as their guide, the country’s top fashion designers created couture collections, elevating the narrative of dance in the post pandemic world.
Admittedly, fusion of ballet and fashion has been around for centuries now. This particular pairing, however, echoed the invigorated enthusiasm of two creative industries that have similarly learned to survive and thrive amidst unprecedented times. As both the local dance and fashion worlds began navigating new territories also known as the “next normal,” there was a distinct brand of wisdom, strength, and resilience that emerged and resonated in their creative outputs.
