My third holiday gift suggestion is these beautiful ballet skirts from Tulips by Tracy.
Born in Cork, Ireland, Tracy started dancing at the age of 5 and trained at the Royal Ballet School from the age of 11 where she graduated from in 2007. In her graduate year, Tracy performed with the Royal Ballet company in various ballets at the Royal Opera House and went on their international 2007 tour to Mexico and the U.S.A. Tracy started her professional career in August 2007 with The English National Ballet as a corps de ballet member, performing their repetoire around the UK and Beijing, China. The following season, Tracy joined Barcelona Ballet under the direction of Angel Corella, as an artist, where she performed a number of soloist and principal roles in various theatres across the world.
Tracy began creating ballet skirts for her friends in 2011 after under going surgery on a knee injury. She really enjoyed creating new designs and making the skirts and after encouragement from her fellow dancers, she created her own little buisness: Tulips by Tracy. Tracy is now back dancing after her surgery, and uses her time outside of the studios to bring skirts to dancers all over the world.
Tulip Skirts are wrap around skirts and are available in the following designs;
Extra short, Short, Medium and Long. They also make “Long Rehearsal Tulips”. This long skirt is a pull-on with an elasticated waist belt. They come in a wide variety of fabrics so you can choose your style and color.
Tulips by Tracy ships all over the world. I personally love these skirts because they are comfortable, beautiful, and very flattering. The company has lots of new ideas and business collaborations coming your way in 2013, with lots of new fabrics for you to order- wherever you are in the world! In order to make this transition a quick and smooth one, Tulips have put together their favorite fabrics and created ready made to order skirts. This means you wont have to wait the usual time for them to process and make your order- perfect for Christmas!
