In celebration of the National Ballet’s 60th Diamond Anniversary, Justina chose to accentuate the tutu’s classic shape with strategically placed crystals against a royal blue pleated bodice and platter. The fabric has been finely pleated as a reference to the profound attention to movement and direction in classical ballet.

Justina McCaffrey is an international fashion industry professional. Beyond her Canadian-based company, she has worked extensively in New York, Hong Kong, Paris, Los Angeles, and Milan. Justina’s designs and company have been editorialized on all major Canadian networks magazines, and newspapers as well as in The New York Times, LA Times, ABC News, Chicago Sun Times, MTV, Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, NBC, CBS, Oxygen TV, Martha Stewart Living, USA Today, and many Hollywood movies. Justina’s personal triumph is in creating a Pluvial Cope for His Holiness Pope John Paul II, a piece currently preserved in the Vatican archives.
