Odile's Triumph Chateau Gown with Bustle
In Act 3 of Swan Lake we meet the beautiful and deceptive Odile, otherwise known as the Black Swan. She is Rothbart's daughter, and has been disguised to look like Odile in a plot to trick Siegfried into forsaking his promise to Odette.
Whilst occasionally Odette and Odile are danced by different ballerinas, it has become customary for the same dancer to embody both roles. This dual role is one of the most iconic in the repertoire. Not only does it contain some of the most technically difficult dancing in the repertoire, but the soloist must show great emotional range to morph from vulnerable and pure Odette to audacious and deceptive Odile.
Our Black Swan floral has been created to embody the commanding and alluring presence of Odette. How could you not seduce a Prince or two when you wear her? Featuring hand painted watercolor blooms set against an ebony backdrop, representing the danger and mystique of the Swan Lake at the moon dips behind the castle.
Speaking of commanding attention, our new Chateau gown is creating quite the commotion! She's our most majestic gown to date. We comprise a multi-layered organza skirt, with exquisite ruffles flowing downwards to the hem, with a seductively high leg split. There's also a giant bridal train with tight ruffled trim, which can be worn flowing out behind you, or bustled up using the buttons and loops at the back waist. The effect of the ruffled train when in full bustle creates the most beautiful appearance.
