Leopold Allen | Fashion Sketches

Leopold Allen (1945-1987) was an artist for the American Ballet Theatre whose artistry was to make up ABT’s dancers to embody and project the roles they were performing by designing and applying the makeup, wigs (and often the shoes) of ABT’s dancers. He was also passionate about fashion in general, and designed many items of clothing and apparel. Here we see some of his original fashion design sketches.
