Quite a few useful items have been fit into this Ballerino Sewing Kit, thanks to the creative composition ideas of Stacy Park. Asked by London's Royal Ballet School to produce a miniature mending box, the designer worked to collect and organize the most crucial doodads for one particular character.
Albrecht, who is the lead male role in the performance of Giselle, has everything that he and his seamstress need to keep his costume looking crisp for every show. An accordion-style system of pockets produces scissors, needles, safety pins, thimbles, thread and fabric patches that match the material of Albrecht's ensembles. This fanned out design of the Ballerino Sewing Kit references the folded structure of the institution's Bridge of Aspiration. A beautiful wooden box protects everything inside.
