Italian fashion designer Valentino Garavani will create costumes for New York City Ballet's Fall Gala at Lincoln Center on September 20.

The gala includes a new ballet set to selections from Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin", two rarely performed pieces d'occasion created for NYCB's 1988 American Music Festival - Sophisticated Lady, which is set to music by Duke and Not My Girl, a pas de deux inspired by, and set to music composed by Fred Astaire. A performance of George Balanchine's "Rubies" will especially feature his signature use of color red.
