Dancing in the streets
By Louisa Pearson for The Scotsman

If there’s one influence that makes its mark on the catwalk year after year, it’s the world of dance. From Pringle’s wraparound cardigans to Kurt Geiger’s high-heeled ballet pumps, the glamour and theatricality of dance has been drawn upon again this season by numerous designers. Some, such as Christian Lacroix and Yves Saint Laurent, have previously taken it a stage further and designed for ballet productions. Of course, today a girl is as likely to grow up wanting to be a breakdancer as a ballerina and the influence of streetdance in fashion has never been stronger. However, the relationship between dance and fashion is a two-way street.

"I think there is a crossover both ways," says Janet Smith, Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre. "I think people designing for dance are often influenced by fashion design. Obviously, for dance a lot of it is about the line of movement and not to cover it up with too many layers," she says. Smith points out that the influence of fashion on dance has at times been superficial, with clothes being used as a means of making work trendy, but she also points to the way that clothing can actually influence choreography.

Hanes Energizes Creative Image with New Advertising Campaign Touting Style and Comfort

Michael Jordan Urges Everyone to Go Tagless: Hanes Her Way Struts Contemporary Style

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Comfort never looked so good, or like so much fun. Hanes moves to a new beat in an all-new advertising campaign launching Monday, Oct. 28 that brings together the best in comfort and style punctuated with the unmatched expressions of basketball great Michael Jordan.

In the newest Hanes underwear commercial for the Hanes Tagless T-shirt, men go to all extremes to find relief from their irritating T-shirt tags in different dance scenes played against music mimicking their scratching. Jordan provides the ultimate call to action, shaking his head in disbelief, "It's got to be the tag. Go Tagless." The commercial closes with the Hanes tagline, "Hanes comfort. It's a beautiful thing." more

Good, plaid and the ugly
We shouldn't be ashamed about how we sell Scotland, tartan and all. By Ruaridh Nicoll for The Observer.


They used shock tactics. A member of the New York Ballet came charging down a catwalk, his face done up in Braveheart blue and white, a kilt loosely wrapped around his waist. Here was our culture, projected to the world, and it certainly shocked. This was 'Dressed to Kilt', an event that took place on Tuesday in New York, part of the execrably named Tartan Week.
The only answer to this sort of American enthusiasm is a bit of sniffy Scottish cynicism, provided with aplomb by the golf writer Malcolm Campbell, who leaned over and asked of the warpaint: 'Do you think that's the right shade of pantone?'

Do you think we could get Ruaridh to review some dance productions? His(?) description of the kilted fireman knocking over the Irish tenor had me falling off my chair with laughter. :D

This article shows the ugliest frock I have ever seen!

All dressed up and ready to dance

Galliano adds a touch of flamenco to a billowing gown
His autumn/winter couture collection for the house, shown in Paris yesterday was an "Invitation to The Dance".

...just a touch of flamenco...

You're right, it seems to be the ugliest garment ever made by anyone ever.

With the possible exception of the new McDonald's uniforms...

"With the possible exception of the new McDonald's uniforms..."

Is that with or without the tomato ketchup decoration?

The flamenco skirt with football shirt and tweed cap sounds good.

Oh my gawd! I agree, the ugliest dress ever. How dare Galliano associate it with dance? It is just so icky....

Yeah, I wouldn't want to dance in it and anyway it's not my colour.
