This picture was taken during the 2011 New York Fashion week; during which ballerinas from the Bolshoi Academy showcased jewelry by Erickson Beamon at Milk Studio.  When I first stumbled upon it, I thought it was a nice editorial shot and got excited about it but then I looked it up and found out it was actually a picture from an event (which is why there are no photo credits). So basically an event happened at Milk Studio where those ballerinas were having a life installation wearing pieces from Erickson Beamon’s collection.

It’s very posh but also kind of cool; and I like this photo in particular because of the aesthetics and because it’s a photograph reflection on two other arts, dance and fashion. Another cool thing about it is that it’s a very contemporary approach both in the presentation and in the nature of the arts. It’s not your classic painting/drawing/sculpture but it has a sense of timeless beauty while belonging exactly to the present (well 2011 at least).
