30. Jenn Woodall with participants of Word on the Street Festival Toronto 2011
This tutu uses lovebirds, luxurious fabrics and saturated hues to evoke the rich history and themes of Romeo and Juliet, notably passion and retribution. While designed by Jenn, the finishing touches of this tutu were added by members of the general public at Toronto’s Word on the Street Festival in 2011. Visitors to the festival signed layers of silk organza with words they felt to be indicative of love. 
Jenn Woodall is a Toronto-based costume designer and illustrator, and a member of the wardrobe department in the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 873. Word On the Street Festival Toronto is a book and magazine festival celebrating literacy and the written word.
For more information, visit the National Ballet’s Virtual Museum, and the Design Exchange exhibits, 60 Years of Designing the Ballet and The Tutu Project on display from July 11 to Sept 2.
