Dansez: New Uniform Designer for ISTD November 20, 2023
We just love a new school who embraces sustainability September 12, 2023
New bbodance Uniform Launched
There is nothing we love to see more after many months of hard work, than a new collection of dance clothes coming to life…when the students and professionals perform in our clothes the second skin of Dansez becomes real.
Working artistically alongside Julie Bowers, CEO of bbodance to create a new uniform has been a very exciting project. During this time many ideas were considered for the design, fabrics and colours of the new uniform and these all come together to create a beautiful and sustainable capsule collection for bbodance members.
The previous uniform comprised of an array of different leotards and colours that were required for each of the different exam genres. Our challenge was to simplify this so that we had a base leotard for each level that could be interchanged with other optional items which repurposed the leotard for the different dance genres that bbodance covers in their syllabus.
We are now able to offer an interchangeable range of leotards, skirts, leggings and shorts for bbodance exams that continue with our aim to keep planet friendly dance clothes high on the agenda of schools and ballet companies. Wouldn’t it be amazing if every student was wearing an item of dance clothing that was made from recycled waste!
In the first few weeks since the launch of the collection we have seen many schools ordering and the feedback has been outstanding. If the photos we are seeing are anything to go by, we are sure more schools will be introducing the uniform very soon and playing their part in the #wastetowear revolution.
