Ballet West Artists Grace Runway at "Couture In Motion," May 8

Join Ballet West and Farasha – a Park City-based women’s retail clothing and accessories pop-up boutique – on Saturday, May 8, for Couture In Motion, a fashion show featuring emergent designers from around the world. Modeled by the artists of Ballet West, this second annual event will be held at St. Regis Deer Crest, 2300 Deer Valley Drive East in Park City, Utah.

Couture In Motion will also feature the shoes from Ballet West’s “Shoe-In.”  Following on the tremendous success of last year’s inaugural “Shoe In” event, Ballet West once again invited Utah artists to re-conceive a pair of satin pointe shoes to be decorated according to the artist’s 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 video installation. These one-of-a-kind creations will be available for purchase that evening.

In addition to “Shoe In,” Ballet West introduces FANTASY TUTU, showcasing local fashion designers’ original tutu creations. The winning tutu submissions will be modeled by Ballet West II dancers at the fashion show 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, complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Limited seating is available. A Fan of Fashion Pass is available for $40 and includes general admission seating.

Couture In Motion and “Shoe In” are Ballet West Ambassador-sponsored projects to benefit Ballet West’s educational and artistic programs. For tickets, visit or contact Ashlee Christofferson at (801) 869-6917 or
