Christian LaCroix: From Catwalk to Stage

A New York Times article and images about Christian Lacroix's 'coutoure' designs for the National Opera in Paris..

“I was often accused — when people did not like my work — of doing couture that was too ‘theatrical,”’ said the designer. “Yet when I was a child, I never thought about fashion but only about making costumes.”

“We are working to create emotion for the thousands of spectators who come to see the performance,” Mr. Lacroix says. “And also to help the dancers, actors or singers to get inside their characters as comfortably as possible. And once they are in costume, they have to forget all about what they are wearing.”
