The very definition of beautiful is what this film is. A dancer alone in a smoky, early morning studio with warm sunshine flowing through the fairy tale windows. As she strokes her silky pointe shoes, she is clearly reminded of all the magic her dancing has brought into her life, how it has given her a purpose. As she stretches at the barre, a routine she will never forget and never give up, you see her stunning black lace shorts and later, applying stage make-up, she dons a cream lace dress: the perfect symbol of femininity. It ends with her dancing alone in a cloudy room, her image duplicating itself like a ballet dancer has to rehearse over and over to reach the proverbial "perfection".
This film shows off the new collection by Nic Briand and Susien Chong, the team behind Australian label Lover. In a collaboration with Australian Ballet's Amber Scott (she choreographed the dance herself to best present the clothing), they created a film to encompass what the collection means and what its inspirations were.
