Prada Design Director Creates Ballet Costume For Fortuna Desperata

Prada and Miu Miu design director, Fabio Zambernardi, has created David Hallberg’s costume, the principal dancer for the Bolshoi Ballet and American Ballet Theatre, in occasion of the performance Fortuna Desperata by Italian artist and filmmaker Francesco Vezzoli .

Francesco Vezzoli says “The costume which Prada has made for David Hallberg is the perfect metaphor for his Fortuna Desperata performance. Its pseudo-renaissance style is philological, yet the materials are ultra-modernist. Like the dance steps that Hallberg will perform, his costume will seem like a futuristic version of a painting by Beato Angelico”.

To create the stunning costume Prada used meticulous fine-tailoring techniques and a combination of classic and contemporary materials. The costume was created entirely by hand.
