Soo busy atm with uni work and impending deadlines, I feel like I've constantly got one thing or another to do.
Thank god I haven't been working at Next as well, I think I may actually have perished by now.
Anyway, this is just a little feature I did about how Black Swan has inspired other artists to imitate the classical ballet look in their s/s collections.
I will hopefully get back to some more interesting/in-depth posts soon!
Black Swan hit our cinema screens this year and cleaned up at the Awards, and its influence is now seeping into the world of fashion.

Magazines have been filled with designer interpretations of this graceful and whimsical theme, with tulle and lace in abundance. Bodysuits, pleated skirts and sheer layers create a romantic look, perfect for balmy summer days.
Valentino, Chloé and Max Azria perfected the look on the runways, with effortless draping in muted hues and understated hair and make-up.
The softly coloured, sheer fabrics evoke a dreamy style that is a sharp contrast to the harsh, masculine tailoring we have also seen on the catwalk this season. This is the definition of femininity; elegant, delicate and demure.
It’s enough to make you want to tie up your ballet shoes and pirouette your way to the nearest dance hall. We are welcoming back the ballerina dreams of our childhood, with a sophisticated update for the new generation.
