This week i am loving the English National Ballet costumes designed by Julien Macdonald for the Queens Coronation Festival!

Each costume has been hand embellished with over 20,000 Swarovski crystals in Pacific Opal, Sapphire, Purple Velvet & Black Diamond. “The costumes themselves are inspired by the glamorous interiors of Kensington Palace and the colourful gardens celebrating the Queens Coronation” said Macdonald.

15 embroiderers, 2 pattern cutters and 3 machinists worked tirelessly on the 10 costumes – each piece taking 300 hours each.
