Austin Scarlett Designs Costumes for Ballet

Project Runway All Star finalist, Austin Scarlett, designed the costumes for "Square None," a contemporary ballet premiering tonight in St. Louis and STLToday posted a Q&A with the designer.

A highlight:

How did you pare down your style of big, breathtaking glamour?

When it comes to ballet, it's really all about making the dancers look beautiful and really highlighting the natural physical beauty of their bodies and their movement. I really like helping to communicate a story with costume.

What will we see on stage?

The colors are pale gray. For the women, there's a kind of corsety-type top, and the bottom is sort of a reinterpretation of the tutu.
