Years ago at the library in a local art college there was a beautiful book on the costumes of the Ballet Russes that I used to drool over as it brings art and design in clothing together. What more could you ask for?
Here’s a link to Ballet Russes: The Art of Costume at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, on show now until 20th March 2011. The site includes lots of beautiful pictures and information on the artist/designers.
