Purple and Silver

I’ve had a bit of a love affair with ribbon roses this year. I adore using them. They are simple and provide texture as well as colour.

The silver and purple corded lace was a perfect match for the deep purple lycra. The rhinestones and ribbon roses complemented it beautifully.

Bodice decoration

The bodice looks like a garden of violets

I shadowed the plate with a narrow band of glitter tulle edged with a delicate silver trim.

The corded lace forms a pretty tracery on the lycra plate.

And the tutu was finished off with a small purple tiara

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
