This is not the first time that the designs of Alejandro Gómez, Palomo Spain, have arrived in New York. The Cordovan designer, who this year will share the limelight with Raf Simons, joins the long list of international designers to collaborate with the New York Ballet and the Fall Fashion Gala, an initiative promoted by Sarah Jessica Parker for the past decade.
This September sees the tenth annual Fall Fashion Gala of its acclaimed ballet come to New York. An event promoted by Sarah Jessica Parker that is already competing with the Met’s annual Spring Gala (one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year) and which was created to raise funds to finance the works that the art institution celebrates and sponsors.
For this autumn season, Spanish designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo, creative director of Palomo Spain; Belgian designer Raf Simons, creative director of his eponymous fashion house and current co-creative director of Prada; and British fashion designer Giles Deacon, have been invited to design the Ballet’s new costumes for the upcoming season.
The garments will be unveiled at the Fall Fashion Gala on 28 September through a world premiere of a new work by choreographer Gianna Reisen, with costumes by Alejandro Gómez Palomo; the first live performance of the work “Solo” by choreographer Justin Peck, with costume design by Raf Simons; and another world premiere, in this case of a new work by choreographer Kyle Abraham, with costumes designed by Giles Deacon.
