Tiptoeing Delicately.

The inspiration behind the Erdem collection was, in fact, due to Erdem Moralioglu beeing by the side of Jane Pritchard, when she co-curated the Victoria & Albert Museum's Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929 exhibition, trying and touching items worn by Nijinsky himself.

Ballerina-like one-shouldered body with flouncing skirt and edgy belt and sandals;

Leather crop-top with chiffon skirt.

Side note: Rodarte designed the skirts for Black Swan, starring Nathalie Portman [December 2010) - the ballet-vibe has definitely been in the air...
