Sorry, I couldn’t get this magazine photo to scan very well, but, suffice it to say, SLSG favorite Veronika Part is in the January 2011 issue of Marie Claire! She’s not talking about weight or Black Swan; she’s featured simply because she’s a muse for young designer Christian Cota. He says, “When I watch Veronika dance, I’m truly captivated by the way her body moves. It pushes me to explore my designs in a way that I haven’t before.”
Cota is Mexican born and studied painting in Paris and fashion at New York’s Parsons School of Design. He launched his eponymous label in 2007. The magazine piece defines his style as: “Light and airy feminine silhouettes in digitally enhanced fine-art prints.”
Sure is an exciting time for ballerinas right now!
