Designer Vivienne Westwood collaborates with Vienna State Ballet for New Years show

Performing on Wednesday, during the intermission of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra's New Year's performance, the Vienna State Ballet will perform a short in head-to-toe Vivienne Westwood. Known for her rebellious designs - Westwood shows us a more romantic side to her aesthetic. Dancer Kathrin Menzinger will sport a customised version of Westwood's Moon dress - which appeared in Westwood's spring 2014 Gold Label show - while partner Vadim Garbuzov will look sharp in a black double-breasted jacket and silk pants.

A film of the ballet will also be previewed during the intermission, and will highlight a few more of Westwood's designs - expect to see a bird of paradise gown, and a collection of tartan mini skirts and bustiers dancing to the polka.

The designers husband - and creative director of Vivienne Westwood - explains, "I feel honoured that we were asked to design the costumes for the New Year's Concert ballet, as it holds such tradition for me. I grew up watching [it] every year, and it's become part of my Christmas memories."

This is not the first time we see Westwood collaborate with ballet companies - back in January the designer dressed the dancers of the English National Ballet for their spring season campaign - and the results were simply breathtaking.
