Headed by Ms. Hyland, the team starts with a sketch and for the Nutcracker, the more over the top the better. "It's fun to do performance dresses because here we can add almost every sort of lace and trim and even go crazy with bows and the sort. Marg Hyland should know, a former dancer herself, she gets her experience and design sense from studying dance for over 20 years, with various famous Dance Instructors including those from The Royal Ballet, Utah Dance Repertory Theater, Martha Graham and started in her first performances with her aunt, the director of the Marcia Hyland School of Dance, one of the largest schools in the East Coast, a former choreographer with the Miss America Pageant as well. Having received her Masters of Dance and Theater Arts in 1981, Ms. Hyland shares her love of theater in each dress she designs. "Designing for the Nutcracker Ballet is absolutely my favorite thing to do".
Typically, local dance schools will hold an audition for children to appear on stage with sometimes the most famous of all Ballet Companies. "I would liken winning an audition to NYC Ballet or ABT Company as the pinnacle of a young New York ballet student. When I was a young dancer, I remember seeing Mikhail Baryshnikov or Suzanne Farrell appearing in The Nutcracker and could not help but be envious of the student who won the part of Clara".
In the past several seasons, Marg's designs for the Nutcracker have appeared all over the country including the prestigious Kansas City Ballet, American Dance Ensemble and Etude's Ballet. "I wish so much that I could have gone to performances, it's really my favorite of all ballets. I still get a kick when my customers send photos of their daughters and sons wearing our Pegeen Designs. It's a real treasure to me".
Like all their styles, the Nutcracker dresses are available in over 200 colors of silk in any combination. Additional fabrics or trims include Swiss Cotton Batiste and Silk Charmeuse and imported laces from England and France. This year's styles includes, among others, a wonderful medley of silk, tulle, French lace and glitter tulle, and even a neck bow. A style befitting of a princess or Clara, Style 405 is also popular for weddings and the smallest to largest of flower girl dresses speaks to someone who wants a Victorian or even Marie Antoinette style ball gown.
Pegeen has also introduced 4 new Clara Nightgowns ranging in fabrics from Silk Charmeuse to Silk Damask. As always, they are trimmed with ribbons but these Nightgowns are sure to please any dance instructor. The construction of which includes the ability for "Clara" to make her important moves as she dances with her "prince". Each includes the all-important hair bow. Although they range from the rather simple to the more elaborate ruffled layered look, the skirts are extra full and of course short enough to show the calf, a very important feature of the ballerina.
Another dress, also in tulle and silk features multiple shades of illusion tulle, delicate flowers at the neck and waistline and trimmed with real silk 1/4" ribbon and flowers. "I particularly love this flower girl dress because as a young girl, I would envision myself swirling in such a dress as I attended the NYC Ballet with my mother who shared a similar love for fabrics and old laces. I think of this dress as Joan's Dress - named for my mom who was so strong a supporter for me of my creative insides - even helped me start the company 32 years ago". Marg's mom sadly passed away a few years ago from the ravages of Alzheimer ’s disease. Her father just passed away and this is the first Christmas Season they will be apart. "I got my love of theatre and music from both my parents who performed professionally, so this year my newest designs are an expression of all things Joan and Bill. In fact, this is the first time that I added a boy's style to the collection which, believe it or not, is very similar to the outfits he would wear as a young boy in the 1920's and 30's".
