Kinder Aggugini's costumes for English National Ballet hit the stage
The costumes which Kinder Aggugini has designed for the English National Ballet hit the stage last week. The designer was given the opportunity to see his designs make their debut at the company's production of 'The Rite of Spring'.
Aggugini created black bodysuits that have been embroidered with intricate patterns which will form part of the English National Ballet's 'Beyond Ballet Russes' season.
"When I saw all of [the dancers] onstage, looking like the tribe I had in my head 10 months ago, I was moved," said Aggugini. "Nothing prepares you for that feeling you get when you sit in the London Coliseum, fully capturing the sound and the vibrations of 50 dancers jumping in unison on the stage."
The ballet launched last week with the last of the performances due to be shown today. A program filled with further Ballet Russes productions will begin this week and continue throughout April. So there are plenty more opportunities for ballet and fashion fans to see Aggugini's mesmerising costumes in action.
