Hilton Garden Inn Midtown/ Park Avenue – New York City
Bio of the designer:
After many years of survival and self-reflection, I realized that my purpose in life is to bring beauty into the world. I came up with a crazy idea, to start a fashion company. Girls In Ballet School, a company that sells the perfect staple to any woman’s wardrobe, Bodysuits.
I watched my daughter study ballet since she was 4 years old, I grew to love the poise, discipline and freedom ballet dancers possessed, hence the name of my bodysuit line. Every creation, every collection, is designed with women in mind, ALL women are my inspiration. Women come in many different aspects, as do my designs, no two women or my bodysuits are alike, Girls In Ballet School is a representation of all women.
Brief description/inspiration/background story about the collection:
“We search for beauty because it doesn’t matter how beautiful a person is, we don’t believe that person has beauty. We keep searching and searching, when everything is already within us”
The Four Agreements
Don Miguel Ruiz
Girls In Ballet School is a company that creates bodysuits. Each and every piece is thought of by a woman, designed by a woman, constructed and produced by women, for women. The core philosophy of the company is women are powerful, and we know life doesn’t just happen to us, we make life happen!
All girls are born with all that they need in life, some of us just aren’t aware. We look at women and assume that they have it all together which breeds envy as well as other unhealthy feelings. It’s so important that we share our stories and embrace one another. Women need to know that we all possess confidence, poise, grace, talent, determination, elegance, strength and freedom for this performance called life, Just like the Girls In Ballet School.
“Casting Call” is the first collection of Girls In Ballet School. Girls In Ballet School is a fashion company as well as a movement and we are in the process of recruiting millions of women to represent the brands diversity, hence the name casting call. Each bodysuit is so different, which represent the many different aspects and beings of women in the world. Girls In Ballet School represents all women and women empowerment.
