Overview

No ballet film is more beloved than The Red Shoes. Created by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, starring prima ballerina Moira Shearer, The Red Shoes was that rare thing: a hit film created by true artists, dancers, composers and one of the greatest French couturiers of the 20th Century, Jacques Fath. In the 1940s, Fath was the equal of Dior and Balmain, some say the greatest of them. Only Fath took America by storm and designed lines for the best department stores. His love of the American woman inspired a look that was dubbed "wearable glamour", and Fath brought it back to the runways of France. Fath's costumes for The Red Shoes are extraordinary and more, they are contemporary. His vision was unique, but it was lost when he died a young man in 1954. Jacques Fath Designs The Red Shoes is the story of the movie and the man who designed the costumes, and it contains a scene-by-scene guide to each of Moira Shearer's outfits.
