It’s the fashion event of the year for little prima ballerinas – the November 21 launch of the latest Designers for Target collection in childrenswear – Collette Dinnigan for The Australian Ballet at Target.

The collection is a gift from Dinnigan to the Australian Ballet, with 10% of every sale going to support their education programs.

From our sneak preview of the collection, everyone involved deserves to take a bow. Dinnigan’s signature style shines through in the range of vintage-inspired tutus, wraps, bounce skirts and tops in dusty rose, lilac, powder blue and white.

Available in sizes 3 to 8, every piece is a confection of romantic delight, with enchanting detail and deliciously soft fabrics lifting them heads and shoulders above your everyday party frock. It’s hard to pick a favourite, but the Tulle Cheesecloth Ballet Dress paired with the Sequin Bolero is a definite showstopper.

The overall quality is something you frankly expect from Dinnigan and don’t from Target, which makes the collection so remarkable. And with prices amazingly affordable – ranging from $19 to $59 – they’re guaranteed to make little girls everywhere dance for joy.

Mark the date – November 21 – the collection will be released in 100 Target stores nationwide and online at target.com.au

    I am in the United States. I assume these ballet outfits are only available in Australia?

    The collection will be available online. Perhaps Target Australia will ship internationally? We’ve tracked down an email address for you to send your inquiry: targetonlineshopping@target.com.au Good luck Stephanie!
