This quarter scale Odette - The White Swan from Swan Lake has been created by renowned costume designer Vin Burnham.

A classical 'plate' tutu decorated with six wing motifs which have been screen printed onto silk organza in silver ink, then beaded with the tiniest Swarovski crystals and stones, and embroidered with a combination of vintage and contemporary seed beads.

The bodice is appliqued using the same technique as the wings, and is covered with a layer of gossamer fine silk tulle. The tutu under layers are made of fine nylon net, with a silk tulle overlay onto which are sewn miniature sequins, crystals and beads using silk thread. Interestingly, Odette has two less wind motifs than Odile on her tutu and she does not have the fringed shoulder straps.

Height 54cm (21¼") x Diameter 33cm (13")

Each costume Ms Burnham creates is hand made to order. You can expect it will take between 4 and 6 weeks for your costume to be completed. Occasionally a long production time it required; we will notify you should such a delay occur.

This costume is hand made and no two costumes will be identical. Please note that no additional discounts will be applied.

Ms Burnham started her career in London at Covent Garden in the Fonteyn and Nureyev era, making costumes and props for designers Nicholas Georgiadis, Yolanda Sonnabend, David Walker, Julia Trevelyan Oman, Maria Bjornson, Barry Kay, and Sally Jacobs.

She is now an international award winning costume designer working mainly in film and television.  Her costumes can be seen on stage at the Royal Opera House in London; her mouse costumes in Peter Wright’s ‘The Nutcracker’, masks in Andre Serban’s ‘Turandot’, dwarf costumes in Anthony Dowell’s ‘Swan Lake’, and headdresses in Kenneth MacMillan’s ‘Gloria’.
