#54 Afternoon of a Faun
On the day I ordered Nelly, I knew that her first pattern would be named Afternoon of a Faun, inspired by Debussy's Prelude a l'Après-midi d'un Faune
and the sensuous ballet choreographed by Nijinsky. Growing up in the world of dance, I had the pleasure of witnessing several performances of this ballet.
While the Faun is performed by a male dancer, the choreography includes three nymphs who wear pale pink, strapless, empire-waisted flowing gowns.
The mood and the lyricism of the music, choreography and costumes provided an amazing source of inspiration for Nelly's first pattern.
