Waaaaay back in July of 2012, I went to the Design Exchange with my friend Christina who was here from St. John's Nfld. for the Adella Campallo workshop. We literally ran out between classes to fit this in and it was worth it, even the 10 min sprint in a heatwave to get back to class on time:)
The event, known as The Tutu Project was held in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the National Ballet of Canada. Sixty originals and 12 of the companies most famous tutus were on display including Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, Gisele, The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet and, of course, Swan Lake.
