The Ragazze Quartet, dressed in haute couture by young Dutch designer Henriette Tilanus plays masterpieces from fashion city Paris in beginning of the 20th century.

Sketches by Henriette Tilanus for Haute Couture

In the beginning of the 20th century Stravinsky, Prokofiev as well as Ravel were living in Paris. In between the little black dresses by Chanel and the colourful costumes of the Ballets Russes, they are composing notes on paper like patterns in a fabric. The string quartet by Ravel minutely like lace, the wealth of colours by Prokofiev and the theatrical approach in three short pieces by Stravinsky.

The Ragazze asked young Dutch couturier Henriette Tilanus to design four dresses inspired by these three fashionable composers.

Stravinsky – Three Pieces
