This tutu embodies the timeless glamour of FAJO Magazine and incorporates its signature colours of red and black. Several FAJO staff members contributed unique, handmade petals in reference to the magazine’s visual branding. The corset was constructed using traditional techniques, such as boning and the fusion of multiple layers of fabric, while the hand-beaded bodice gestures to haute couture. The result is a piece that showcases similarities among the dance and fashion worlds.

FAJO Magazine is an international, digital luxury magazine that provides in-depth coverage of the fashion industry around the world. Published monthly, the magazine has featured such style icons as Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeanne Baker, Anna Dello Russo, David Dixon, Alexandra Richards and Karolina Kurkova.
