Taking Tutus to the Street (then hopefully to the theater..)

You've probably noticed tulle-sporting toddlers frolicking in the park, riding in grocery carts and strutting their stuff down the sidewalk. It's true: The hottest streetwear trend for today's fashion-forward kindergarten crowd is the tutu!


To take advantage of this ballet fever sweeping the playground, fashion designer Collette Dinnigan has collaborated with the Australian Ballet to create a line of tutus, tops and bolero jackets for the company's 50th anniversary. The idea is to help AB reach a larger audience of young people.


Beginning November 21, the line will be available at Target, definitely a wise decision when it comes to reaching the non-dance audience.
