For most of my childhood I either wanted to be a ballerina, a teacher, or a combination of the both. Later I wanted to be a costume designer for the Pennsylvannia Ballet Company. I am only a week away from graduating high school and entering college, and I can't imagine studying any of those things for the next four years (although I'd be a teacher before I'd be a ballerina). If I could truely grow up to be one thing though I think I would still want to be a costume designer. If I could be reincarnated as one article of clothing though it would have to be the tutu Karl Lagerfeld designed for the dance of the dying swan. This is not Lagerfeld's first ballet costume but i think the combination of feathers and white plus the winglike details make it my favorite.
