New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker has more high-fashion plans up her sleeve this year. On September 30, Lincoln Center play host to New York City Ballet's Fall Fashion Gala, where five ballets will showcase original costumes by some of the most renowned fashion designers.

This is the fourth year that the gala will feature designer-choreographer collaborations since Valentino made costumes for four ballets in 2012. Adeam founder Hanako Maeda will design for Robert Binet's premiere ballet and Opening Ceremony's Humberto Leon and Carol Lim will dress Justin Peck's ballet ensemble. Meanwhile, Marques'Almeida is to collaborate with Troy Schumacher, and haute couture designer Zuhair Murad will work with Myles Thatcher.

NYCB Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins' revival of Thou Swell, to be performed as the final ballet of the evening, will be costumed by Oscar de la Renta's Peter Copping.

Somebody get us tickets to New York for September, please. The gala is going to be so beautiful.
