More about the project:

This collaboration between Moore and Philadelphia Ballet is part of the Ballet’s award-winning Community Education and Public Programs, which provides rich access to dance creating a connection to the arts. As part of Moore’s Apparel Design Studio One course, junior-year Fashion Design students worked directly with Philadelphia Ballet during the fall 2023 semester to design and create costumes for four characters. From initial concepting to designs, fittings and photography, students acted as professional costume designers under the advisement of Moore faculty. The pieces were professionally photographed and displayed at The Academy of Music during Philadelphia Ballet’s December run of The Nutcracker, and will now be on view in The Galleries at Moore, beginning January 25.
