For the 2017 New York City Ballet Fall Gala, Off-White™‘s Virgil Abloh will join forces with Laura Kim, Fernando Garcia, Jonathan Saunders and Tsumori Chisato to create its costumes. The designers were hand picked today to imagine, design and create the costumes and join an alumni group that includes fashion icons Valentino (2012), Olivier Theyskens (2013), Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (2014), Carolina Herrera (2014), Thom Browne (2014) and Dries Van Noten (2016).

Since launching in 2012, with the help of Sarah Jessica Parker — who is returning as a co-chair this year –
