When we were at the Musee D'Orsay two weeks ago, I found myself so easily drawn to Degas's pieces. Of all of them, his ballet paintings remain my favorite. With subtle strokes of his brush, he was able to give the dancers a feeling of airy lightness. In every piece, I was struck by how he was able to capture the graceful movement of a dancer.
That feeling of fluidity and of movement seemed not only to come from the dancers, but it also resonated from their beautiful costumes made from what I imagined to be layers and layers of tulle. Whether used in ballet or fashion, tulle has a way of expressing a women's softness, gracefulness, and femininity.
Doesn't tulle remind you of party dresses when you were a little girl? I always thought the perfect dress was one that looked pretty when I spun around in it!
