New York City Ballet has announced plans for its sixth Fall Gala, a yearly fund-raising event known for attracting the City’s highest profile/wealthies residents. Sarah Jessica Parker, the force behind starting the event in 2012, will return as the event’s chair.
As part of the big night, the organization has announced the designers and choreographer who will come together to create upcoming performance costumes, which will make their debut at the September 28, 2017, event.
Abloh will design costumes for a new piece by choreographer Gianna Reisen. Garcia and Kim will work with principal dancer Lauren Lovette on costumes for her second choreographic work for the company. Chisato is paired with choreographer Justin Peck, and Saunders will design with company soloist Troy Schumacher, who will use the costumes in his third choreographic work for New York City Ballet.
No early views of the costumes just yet, but we will update when we have them. Image above is via ballerina Lovette’s Instagram.
