‘A Fleeting Scene’ Graduate Collection Abstract

Abstract

Fashioned amid wrecked bodies the collection ‘A Fleeting Scene’ is a melancholic observation into the insular world of ballet. Compelled by the disintegration incurred through the pursuit of perfection, ballet’s dreamlike fantasy is a spectre. Effortless and graceful it feeds the hungry spectators whilst the reality is anything but. A fleeting Scene uses traditional costume techniques to challenge the aesthetic and perception of ballet. A dark, vibrant and soft toned color palette defines the delicate yet seductive ballet aesthetic. Fleeting, ephemeral evenings of triumph and applause, which fades too quickly as ballet dancers inevitably age. Backstage ballerina’s mental and physical suffer-

ing for their art lingers beneath a façade of beauty .with an all-consuming desire to dance. As bodies deteriorate; costumes fall apart to reveal an image of beautiful anguish.
