Lace collar worn by Tara Robertson in 'Fleet'

  • Costumes

From the back, this lace collar looks as though it is from 1788, complete with historical dirt and grime. When the garment is seen from the front, a zip, which helps the dancer make her quick costume change, makes it clear that the collar is recently made. The audience rarely sees these tricks of the trade designed into the costumes.
