Happy 50th Birthday NYC Ballet
From Fame to Black Swan, New York city has always been the city of dreams for dancers in movies. Real life is no different. The prestigious New York City ballet, at Lincoln Center, is the mecca of the disciplined dance, both for performers and enthusiasts alike. This Spring, the epic Ballet organization turns 50 years old.
One of the most intriguing thoughts is that the medium has always resonated with fashionable women — think Audrey Hepburn’s classic ballet flats to Carrie Bradshaw’s infamous tutu skirt. Taking a peek at the eBay closet, we continue to see the rise of ballet consciousness, with almost 20% increase of the ballet flats by Repetto. Beyond that, we can attest that the tutu skirts have increased 63%, body suits are up 51%, and tulle skirts up 46% on eBay.
We don’t foresee “ballet chic” ever going out of style, but we do strongly suggest donning the elegance this season to honor the half century birthday of the craft. You can begin by checking out En Pointe, a collection of items put together on eBay to launch your search.
