I have a confession to make.  I have a major crush on The Australian Ballet.

I mean, if the Australian Ballet was a person, he/she would be cultured, super intelligent and devastatingly attractive. Don’t you think?

Proving they are as cool as they are cultured, the team in ballet-land have just launched a gorgeous range of new tote bags – collaborating with Chip Chop, no less!

GORGEOUS new Australian Ballet v. Chip Chop tote bags – available here.  ps) In actual fact, the ballet tote bags have been SO popular since launching 2 weeks ago, the ‘PLIÉ CHASSÉ JETÉ‘ design is already out of stock! :( BUT don’t despair! They’ll be available again from mid Sept, check the Aus Ballet online shop in a couple of weeks, or you can sign up for the Ballet’s e-news and they’ll let you know as soon as they’re back!

Luckily for me, my ballet crush is reciprocated – the lovely Aus Ballet marketing and publicity team are big TDF fans, and consequently they have a super generous giveaway for one lucky Design Files reader!

The prize is valued at $270.00, and includes :

- A double-pass to Edge of Night, Aus Ballet’s brand new triple-bill performance which launches in Melbourne this week!

- A gorgeous ‘PLIÉ CHASSÉ JETÉ ALL DAY’ tote bag valued at $50.00

The double-pass can be used for any performance in either the Melbourne or Sydney show seasons – for Melbourne, any date between 27th August and 4th September (all info here) and for Sydney between 12th and 29th November (all info here).
