Ballet Russes I

Pictured above are some of the amazing costumes that are currently being exhibited around the world( at The National Gallery Of Australia, Canberra,and The Victoria and Albert Museum London) in celebration of the Ballets Russes. I love the amazing contrasts of fabrics and trims these costumes were designed in the early 1900's during the Russian Revolution and First World War, a catalytic time for design, in Western Europe and beyond. (thanks)
