This tutu features an industrial skyline on the tutu’s plate, which is juxtaposed with a vibrant garden on the underside. The wide variety of sewing techniques used in this highlights the interdisciplinary nature of the National Ballet’s wardrobe department, celebrating the creativity and expertise of our internal tutu team.
A variety of skills and experience are shared by these members of The National Ballet of Canada’s Wardrobe Department, including costuming for film, television and theatre. Combined, they have more than 100 years of experience making costumes.

Designed and built by: Lisa Farinaccio, Marnie King, Lily Messerhuber, Samantha Wyton, Myles Wyton-Fraser, Samara McAdam, Ava McAdam-Beder, Heather English, Ilana Harendorf, Lisa Di Quinzio, Ruth Bartel, Sue Daly and Cindy Rusak.
