NYFW News: Opening Ceremony Will Show Fall 2017 Collection At The New York City Ballet
Open Ceremony is headed to the New York City Ballet!
The brand’s founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon just announced that they will show their Fall 2017 collection for Opening Ceremony ahead of fashion week, January 28 at the New York City Ballet.
Lim and Leon will partner with Justin Peck, the resident choreographer of the New York City Ballet, to put on a unique event at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater. In the past, the duo worked with Peck, designing leotards under Kenzo for his piece performed at the NYC Ballet’s Fall Gala in 2015.
Peck will show his new ballet for the NYCB’s 2017 season, aptly titled “The Times Are Racing.” The dancers will be outfitted in custom designs and they will trade in their ballet shoes for sneakers. The collaboration is said to have inspired Opening Ceremony’s Spring 2017 collection, and the pieces debuting at the NYCB will be available at Opening Ceremony and retail partners the following day, January 29.
