The life and works of fashion legend Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel will be celebrated in a new ballet premiering at Moscow's Bolshoi on Saturday that highlights the designer's love of Russia and starring prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova.


The one act performance by choreographer Yuri Possokhov pays homage to the celebrated founder of the fashion house that bears her name and features a stunning display of Chanel costumes specially created for the ballet.

Created specifically for Zakharova, the ballet "Gabrielle Chanel" recounts the most memorable moments of the work and life of the French fashion designer, who died in 1971 aged 87.

"She loved Russian ballet, Russians and Russia," Zakharova said. "She helped Russian aristocrats who were forced to flee Russia. She loved Russian models." 

The Bolshoi created eighty five costumes for the performance using Chanel designs, making sure they would not hamper the dancers' movements.

"It will be a celebration of friendship between ballet and fashion," Zakharova told reporters ahead of the performance.

"But this will not be a fashion show, it will be a genuine spectacle."

Zakharova, 40, said she carefully studied Chanel's life and even visited her apartment at rue Cambon in Paris to prepare herself for the role.

The opening of Chanel's first Paris atelier, her romantic liaison with Englishman Arthur "Boy" Capel and her passion for Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes dance company are featured in the show.

Some of Chanel's most famous quotes and her photographs are projected onto the screens above the stage during the show.

The creators of the ballet hope to present the show in Paris at a later stage, said producer Yury Baranov.
