Our good friend and model Elyse Taylor (read more about her in our interview last year) recently collaborated with children’s label Tutu Du Monde to create a very special limited edition tutu for for the charity Bear Cottage.
Named the “Lila” tutu after Elyse’s Daughter Lila, the tut was designed when Elyse was recently in Sydney. Elyse took part in the design process with Andrea Rembeck (Tutu Du Monde’s Designer) choosing fabrications, colours and embellishments. The “Lila” tutu has a a sprinkling of silver sequins across the bodice and graduating waterfall skirt of pink and plummy tulle.
80 special edition Tutu’s have been put into production and are available for sale through the website –
$100 from the proceeds of each “Lila” Tutu will be donated directly to Bear Cottage.
