NYC BALLET 10TH ANNUAL FALL FASHION GALA
September 28, 2022
Time to charge up the fall gala season with NYC Ballet's 10th Annual Fall Fashion Gala on Sept. 28. One of the most anticipated fall events, this year's celebration spotlights a commissioned world premiere score by Grammy-Award winning singer, songwriter, and visual artist Solange Knowles choreographed by a rising talent, Gianna Reisen.
With the release of Solange's
critically acclaimed albums, A Seat at the Table and When I Get Home, Solange has invoked themes of
identity, empowerment, grief, and healing that have resonated with millions of voices. The ballet includes costumes by fashion
designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo for Palomo Spain, featuring Swarovski crystals; and lighting by Mark
Stanley, NYCB’s Resident Lighting Director.
In addition, the evening will include a
World Premiere ballet by Kyle Abraham (costume design by Giles Deacon), the live performance premiere
of Justin Peck’s Solo (costume design by Raf Simons), and excerpts from George Balanchine’s Symphony
in C (costume design by Marc Happel).
This year’s event will honor Sarah Jessica Parker, a vice chair of the NYCB Board of Directors, who
conceived the Fall Fashion Gala in 2012 with a celebration of the legendary designer Valentino.
Joining Parker as Chairs of the 2022 Fall Fashion Gala are Honorary Chair Steven Kolb, CEO of the
Council of Fashion Designers of America; and co-Chairs Georgina Bloomberg, Andy Cohen, Laverne Cox,
Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy, Jill Kargman, Diane Kruger, Mazdack and Zanna Rassi, Deborah Roberts,
Jordan Roth, and Lizzie Tisch.
