Dance & Fashion

A new show featuring dance costumes, fashion inspired 
by dance and featuring such items as Margot Fonteyn's pointe shoes 
is inspiring our latest collection for Spring 2015.




Special Exhibitions Gallery
September 13, 2014 - January 3, 2015
Dance And Fashion explores the relationship between two great embodied art forms: dance and fashion. Dance has utilized a wide variety of costumes, including contemporary fashions, to identify different characters, but there are also certain iconic styles, which represent a dance more abstractly. Tutus and pointe shoes, for example, are integral to the image and movements of the ballerina, just as leotards and tights are associated with the modern dancer.

Green Festival Runway Show

As part of the Earth Day celebrations, Astridland participated in the Fashion Fights Poverty 
Runway show Sunday at Pier 94. 
  
For the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, Astridland captures the vibrant spirit of New York City through contradictions: slouchy hoods and luxurious woolen fabrics capture the urban grittiness of city life while clean lines, soft innovative tops and shiny dresses with dolman sleeves evoke a subtle sophistication. 

Astridland is 100 % chic  0 % waste  


Astridland is committed to sustainability. Producing all garments in the Garment District in New York City, the company incorporates all leftover fabrics into accessories such as gloves, handbags and hair accessories. Both function and aesthetic inform the embellishments of the collection.






Fashion Fights Poverty's mission is to raise awareness for initiatives that encourage and support creative, effective, and sustainable means of challenging poverty. We believe that the industries of fashion, textiles, and design offer unique and effective opportunities for designers, craftsmen and consumers alike to contribute to the alleviation of poverty through trade, skill-building and community empowerment
