Blog Takeover | Lily Silverton Day 4

I’m currently taking an evening course at the Sotherby’s Institute of Art on Art & Fashion in the 20th Century. Last week we had a lecture from the imitable Jane Pritchard, Curator of Dance at the V&A, on the Ballet Russes. The impact of Sergei Diaghilev’s seminal company on 20th Century aesthetics was just phenomenal. With help from Picasso, Matisse, Bakst, Paquin and Chanel the Ballet Russes redefined style & fashion. And its influence is still felt today.

These pieces might be very modern, but they wouldn't look at odds on a young Anna Pavlova, Tamara Karsavina or Vera Nemchinova…
