Praise For…


“The close relationship between ballet and fashion might today seem like a foregone conclusion, but this wasn’t always the case. In Ballerina, Patricia Mears, deputy director of The Museum at FIT, examines how the figure of the ballerina came to be a prominent influence on design.”

— Dance Magazine

“The ballerina occupies a unique place in Western high culture as a symbol of beauty and grace. . . . Her influence seeped into the world of fashion as the tutu became a source of inspiration for leading fashion designers. ‘Ballerina: Fashion’s Modern Muse’ pairs archival photographs of ballerinas with newly commissioned photos of modern ballerinas wearing ballet-influenced couture. The book’s text, written by leading dance and fashion critics, traces the relationship between ballet and fashion and between great ballerinas and designers.”

— Wall Street Journal

“Like two sisters sharing a closet, fashion and ballet have borrowed freely from each other for over a century. . . . It’s fun to document these parallels, as Ballerina: Fashion’s Modern Muse, by Patricia Mears, does in fastidious detail, with a rich assortment of photos.”

— W Magazine
