Italian lingerie retailer Intimissimi will host an ice dance show in Verona next month.
The ‘Intimissimi on Ice Opera Pop’ show, which will take place at the Arena di Verona on September 20-21, will combine fashion with figure skating, music and special effects.
Renowed fashion photographer, Ali Madhavi, has taken inspiration from the AW14 Intimissimi lingerie collection to create the show’s costumes, which will be worn by international ice skating champions, including Stephane Lambiel, Carolina Kostner and Ann Cappellini.
The show’s creative team also includes Emmy-award-winning producer Marco Balich, X Factor choreographer Nathan Clarke and opera director Francisco Negrin.
Balich, commented: “We want to create an impressive live show that approaches the ice show in a new way. With the best skaters in the world and exceptional creative talents we want to make this new ice show format that would be hopefully appeal worldwide.”
“There is nothing common in organizing a huge event; it is always a unique journey into the history and the soul of the event, the country and the participants. With Intimissimi on Ice Opera Pop, we are creating a high impact wow event that will be unique and hopefully memorable in the future.”
