‘Theatre of Varieties’ The Box commission Lisa King to design the costumes for their performance at the Naked Heart Foundation's star studded charity event, the Fund Fair. Founded by supermodel Natalia Vodianova, the night hosted at London's Roundhouse raised over 800,000 pounds for children with special needs.
Taking inspiration from Fellini's classic film La Dolce Vita, Lisa and her team painstakingly created ten hand painted outfits for the dancers in the graphic print style of ancient Rome.
