Moschino Tutu for English National Ballet

In June 2011, English National Ballet took over one of London’s most glorious outdoor settings, The Orangery in Kensington Palace Gardens, for an evening of breathtaking ballet,
fabulous fashion and fundraising.

To mark the event, English National Ballet invited Moschino amongst other designers
to create tutus or ballet inspired dresses. These wonderful creations were auctioned live
on the night and for this occasion, Moschino designed a tutu inspired by the quintessentially British ‘Pearly Kings & Queens’. The tutu is black and embellished heavily with
Mother of Pearl buttons to create a stunning, intricate pattern incorporating the
iconic Moschino symbols: M for Moschino, the heart and the peace symbol. 

Events like this form an integral part of fundraising activity; helping to sustain the vibrant life of English National Ballet and supporting their renowned learning and outreach work and enabling them to deliver world-class ballet to the nation.
