On September 27, New York City Ballet will present the seventh installment of its annual Fall Fashion Gala, celebrating choreography and costume design with an evening of world premiere ballets and creative collaborations with three very different fashion designers: Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh, and Alberta Ferretti.
Each designer has been paired with a different choreographer: Giles Deacon with Kyle Abraham, who is producing his first-work for a ballet company, Gareth Pugh with Matthew Neenan, also creating his first piece for NYCB, Alberta Ferretti with Gianna Reisen, who will make her second work for the Company.
Conceived by NYCB Board Vice Chair Sarrah Jessica Parker and launched in 2012, the Fall Fashion Gala has raised more than $15 million for the company over the last six years. Previous designer collaborators include Virgil Abloh of Off-White, Rosie Assoulin, Thom Browne, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Tsumori Chisato, Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim of MONSE and Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Carolina Herrera, Mary Katrantzou, Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo, Hanako Maeda of ADEAM, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida of Marques’Almeida, Zuhair Murad, Narciso Rodriguez, Jonathan Saunders, Olivier Theyskens, Valentino, Iris van Herpen, Dries Van Noten, and Jason Wu.
Benefit-priced tickets for the gala evening, which include the 7 p.m. performance, a pre-performance reception, and black-tie supper ball following the performance, are available through the NYCB Special Events Office at 212-870-5585 and at nycballet.com/fallgala.
