Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Choreographer Jermaine Browne's New Line Will Take You From the Dance Studio to Dinner
Dance and fashion have long inspired one another. Just look at the number of glossy editorials ballet has inspired, or the number of ballets costumed by designers (see: Valentino for the Vienna State Opera, Rodarte for Black Swan). And for choreographer James Browne, whose credits include the Victoria's Secret fashion show, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger and Rachel Roy's gorgeous video look book for her spring Rachel Rachel Roy collection, fashion and dance are inextricably intertwined. So creating a high fashion dancewear line was the logical thing to do. "There's nothing out there really for someone like me who likes fashion and is also looking for dancewear to dance, be comfortable, and look fashionable in, and then run from a rehearsal into a quick meeting," Brown said. "I've always had this idea of trying to find dance clothes that can be worn in the studio or onstage and out to dinner."
