Fashion and ballet have always been good buds. Rodarte famously designed costumes for Black Swan and the New York City Ballet, Riccardo Tisci has designed for the Paris Opera Ballet and numerous other names – Christian Lacroix, Joseph Altuzarra, Coco Chanel – have created beautiful versions of the iconic tutu.

Now the New York City Ballet will be marking their Fall Gala with exclusive designer collaborations – four of their five scheduled ballets will each have costumes designed by celebrated fashion designers. Carolina Herrera will be designing for Peter Martins' Morgen, while Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen will be working with Liam Scarlett. Thom Browne will costume Troy Schumacher's NYCB main stage debut, and Mary Katrantzou will partner with Justin Peck.

The NYCB's galas have long been stylish, star-studded events, and the new line-up of designers seems only fitting – after all, Sarah Jessica Parker is a co-chair of the gala.
