I thought I’d hop on the bandwagon but as always…with a CCF twist!
There’s something about ballet that fashion folks are just drawn to — maybe it’s the intricate costumes on stage, or the fact that ballerinas are basically models in tutus, perhaps it’s the footwear (although with the decline in popularity of the ballet flat…I doubt it) but regardless of the reason, you really can’t avoid the topic of ballet in fashion.
