Ballet and fashion may be distant step-siblings, with one emphasizing motion and the other spectacle. But both live and die by grace and execution, so why not pair them in a fundraiser?
Ballet West's Fourth Annual "Couture in Motion" does that to the extent that it dresses a handful of the company's dance artists in international fashion for a sight to behold. In this case, the fashion is provided by Park City retailer Farasha, specializing in emerging fashion designers from around the world.
This year's installment also walks with a special emphasis on shoes from Ballet West's "Shoe-In," showcasing Utah artists' most daring recreations of foot-wear that push this most practical of clothing items into new territory. All proceeds from this classy night out go toward Ballet West's outreach and education programs.
