The Design Exchange in Toronto recently launched two exhibits in partnership with The National Ballet of Canada, which is currently celebrating its sixtieth anniversary season. Curated by costume designer and scholar Caroline O’Brien, “60 Years of Designing the Ballet” offers a behind-the-scenes look at prized costumes, props and settings from the company’s history. It is accompanied by “The Tutu Project”, which features sixty one-of-a-kind tutus crafted by Canadian fashion designers. Both exhibits run until September 2nd.
