Dancers aren't the only ones who defy gravity onstage. Tutus have their own magical way of looking otherworldly. Ever wondered how you could create your own from scratch? Prescott & Mackay, an independent fashion design school with locations in London and San Francisco, offers two-day tutu-making courses using The Royal Ballet standard. Over the course of 14 hours, students create a 10-layer, 16 inch tutu skirt, guided by costumer Amanda Hall. An addition 14-hour tutu bodice course will complete the costume. It's a sure way to put a very personal stamp on your next variation.
