Hamden High School in Connecticut is a long-time client of D.A. Designs. For this piece they requested a dance costume for their kick-line / high-kick dance team. They wanted a costume that was striking, bold, and loud to go with their song “Enter Sandman” from Metallica. They also wanted something that could be used in their choreography, and could also change the look mid-routine.

Inspired by a beautifully loud outfit worn by Beyonce, we designed this intense outfit that features burgundy luxury velvet with a black mystique corset. The metallic mesh sash is a detachable prop, connecting from hip to shoulder, drastically changing the look of the costume while incorporating a fun piece that could be used in the choreography.
