ARTS San Antonio Unites Performance Art with Fashion

By Melissa Unsell of Vinously Chic

The Joffrey Ballet will perform The Rite of Spring on March 8th at the Lila Cockrell Theatre.  To celebrate the Centennial of the production’s debut, ARTS San Antonio is hosting an array of events leading up to the performance.  With the help of Neiman Marcus, ARTS SA presented Joffrey Fashion and Passion Event highlighting the best fashion for ballet spectators along with the newest trends.

Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography for the 1913 Paris premiere of The Rite of Spring sparked a riot that is said to have given birth to modern music and dance.  The symbiotic workings of the music, costumes and choreography create an intense space of artistic expression.  Similar consequences can be drawn from the artful expression of fashion.


This event united performance art with fashion, with an astonishing array of artistic capabilities.


First up on the runway was “Spring and Blue”!  An array of blue tones makes for a whimsical start to the show.



Next up was orange!  This citrus color is the new neutral.  Wear it with anything and don’t neglect the energy it transpires.



Then came the chic leisure looks.  Effortless style, meets comfort.




The PRINT is on!  It’s on the streets.  We saw prints in Fall fashion, and they are sticking around for Spring.  Find a pattern that sings to you and put it on!  (And don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit).



Lovely in Lace.  Romantic yet sexy, lace is in.




Couture Culture time.  This couture collection is sure to turn heads.  Wanna be a showstopper?  Adorn one of these…



If you’re feeling inspired to adorn wearable art or to enjoy a performance art adventure, this event will have inspired you.  How will you enhance your space of artistic expression?
