Dansez: New Uniform Designer for ISTD
As Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) approach their 120th anniversary we are honoured to have been chosen to create a new high quality, flexible and sustainable uniform for both students and teachers.
Over the coming weeks our innovative design team will be working with ISTD and their members to create a bespoke, modern and forward looking capsule collection. Their new uniform will offer choice, flexibility and be part of our continual efforts to reduce the negative environmental impact of dance clothes.
Gemma Matthews ISTD Director of Membership and Communications:
“We decided to partner with Dansez as they share in our values and led an incredible change in the use of sustainable fabrics and manufacturing techniques in designing dance clothing. From their own studios in Kent they have for almost 50 years, designed and produced stunning dance clothes for some of the UK’s leading dance schools, colleges and professional dancers.”
Samantha Carney, Dansez Managing Director:
"We are delighted to welcome ISTD to the Dansez family alongside many other UK leading ballet schools and organisations that have also chosen Dansez for their sustainable dance clothes, uniforms and recommended examination wear. Working with world leaders in fabric and thread sustainability we have been able to show how it is possible to buy sustainably, place the future of the planet centre stage but still wear something that delivers confidence in performance. We are excited about the creative process ahead with ISTD and launching a new collection in 2024."
