Ballet West Artists Grace the Runway at "Couture In Motion," April 30

Third Annual Event to Take Place in Airplane Hangar of Million Air Salt Lake City

Ballet West and Farasha – a Park City-based retail clothing and accessories pop-up boutique – will join forces on Saturday, April 30, for Couture In Motion, a fashion show featuring emergent designers from around the world. With fashions modeled by the artists of Ballet West, this third annual event will be held in an airplane hangar at Million Air Salt Lake City, Utah's largest provider of full-service general aviation services, located at 303 North 2370 West.

Couture In Motion
will also feature the shoes from Ballet West’s “Shoe-In,” in which Utah artists re-conceive a pair of satin pointe shoes and decorate them according to their whim and creativity.  Exploring all kinds of mediums and pushing boundaries was encouraged, and the finished creations took shape in a variety of mediums like steamed oak, clay and feathers. These one-of-a-kind creations will be available for purchase that evening.

In addition to “Shoe In,” Ballet West will once again include FANTASY TUTU, showcasing local fashion designers’ original tutu creations. During the event, the winning tutu submissions will be modeled by members of Ballet West’s Pre-Professional Trainee Program and will also be available for purchase that evening.

The pre-show party for Couture In Motion begins at 6:00 p.m., followed by the fashion show at 8:00 p.m. An All-Access Pass to Couture In Motion is $100 and includes admission to the pre-show party, reserved seating, drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Limited seating is available. A Fan of Fashion Pass is available for $40 and includes general admission seating.
