Evie Malone

Ballet Costume: Corset and Skirt

Peter Wright’s production of the Nutcracker first staged by the Australian ballet in 2007 was the inspiration for Evie’s dance costume for the character of the Snow Queen.

A fusion of tulle and satin, blue and ivory tones and highly decorative features was the starting point for her designs. A traditional ballet tutu with corset bodice gave Evie a blank canvas to showcase a range of textural techniques such as smocking, rouleaux trim and steam-set pleating to create a beautiful visually stunning costume.
