Kinsphere

Kinsphere is a contemporary ballet costume collection with a focus on movement in the garments to enhance the dancer’s movements on the stage. The word Kinsphere means the three-dimensional space around the body in which all movement happens, and is part of the inspiration for my collection. My collection Kinsphere stays within this space and enhances the movements of the dancer within the sphere. Each outfit has a garment that has been hand dyed and painted to create visual appeal within the dancers personal space. The collection is comprised of olive green and blue, inspired directly from the ocean. There is a green and blue two-tone silk chiffon which is the basis of the collection. Almost all of the blue has been dip dyed and then painted on afterwards. The collection is also comprised of spandex bodysuits that layer under the chiffon and mesh pieces.
