Fashion & Ballet
On Saturday 24 January, in collaboration with film maker Mathieu Gremillet and Dutch National Ballet, designer David Laport is presenting his Spring/Summer collection 2015 during the event Fashion & Ballet in the Koepelkerk, in Amsterdam. Laport took his inspiration for the collection from his fascination for the insect world. Along with choreographer Juanjo Arques and two female dancers from Dutch National Ballet, film maker Mathieu Gremillet has created a short film & performance, in which the collection and dance come together.
David Laport: “Dance allows the feeling of movement and expression that always plays an important role in my designs to become even more visible. I see the dance movements almost as an extension of the designs. They bring the clothes to life and the dancers give a new approach to the designs”.
