Relive March 2016 edition



The demanding practice of classical dance

Alongside the unveiling of the F/W 2016-17 collections at the Tuileries trade shows, this year we also celebrated the world of dance and its many forms, with a special focus on the art of ballet. The art of dance was brought to life by the work of scenographer Thomas Phélizon. This season, the visual communication of the event was entrusted to renowned photographer, Olivier Amsellem.

The worlds of classical dance and fashion continue to engage in a powerful and creative dialogue with each other, inspiring collaborations between designers, choreographers and artists. It was Josua Hoffalt who decided to put this dialogue into practice. Principal dancer at the Paris Opera, he was also the source of inspiration for the theme of this year’s Tuileries trade shows.

Classical dance has the power to inspire well beyond the onstage world. An inventor of identity, dance has the power to bring meaning to everything it touches. It personifies the values of luxury and, centered around a vision of the moving body, of perfect gesture, grace and femininity, classical dance has an unspeakable power to create pure beauty as it calls on a universal language.
