In 1947, Rose Repetto creates her first ballet shoes on the advice of her son Roland Petit, in a tiny workshop near the National Opera of Paris.
In 1956, on Brigitte Bardot's request, Rose Repetto creates the “Cendrillon” ballerina and dedicates it to her. For BB, this ballerina will always be a part of her success in Vadim's film “And God Created Woman” from 1956.
Rose Repetto opens her first boutique at 22 Rue de la Paix in Paris in 1959. It becomes the place frequented by the world's prima ballerinas: Bejart, Noureev, Barychnikov, Carolyn Carlson, the Kirov at the 'Folies Bergères', all are supplied with their dancing shoes and garments by Repetto.
With a view to expanding her company, Rose Repetto establishes a factory in Saint Medard d'Excideuil in Dordogne in 1967. Nowadays, the pointe shoes and ballerinas are still made using the famous 'stitch and return' method with the highest skill.
In the 70’s, Serge Gainsbourg got fascinated by the “Zizi”, a shoes model, created by Rose Repetto for Zizi Jeanmaire her daughter in law. He became the ambassador of the brand.
Repetto is above all the number one reference for dance equipment, especially for ballet, and the supplier of the most prestigious dancers, from top till toe.
Clothes of the dance collection are created thanks to our know-how that is developed since 1947.

Ballet dancers are obliged to respect the rulebook that dictates their clothing but during warm-ups, they are free to express their personal styles. It is at these moments that you notice the modern influences within the opera, a fascinating mix of creativity and functionality (in order to keep muscles and joints warm) expressed with absolute grace.
The warm-up overalls in grey mesh is one of these timeless must-haves. It is just as beautiful folded over your hips, as it is simply worn over bare skin or over multiple layers of leotards and worn-out sweatshirts.
If classical dance remains a great inspiration to fashion, the warm-up sessions, even more so; that exciting studio moment, when the dancers can just let go and express themselves fully. Fame is not far off, Jane Fonda and her aerobics neither, only less colourful. It’s in the ballet rehearsal studios that you will find that unique way of combining layers, invented by the dancers themselves, in order to protect their bodies. All other dance disciplines have drawn inspiration from the unique, sensual yet graceful allure of the ballerina, perfectly conscious of her body and movements. The worn out is cherished, grey an unspoken rule, mesh fabrics, soft wool and cotton fleece, the prime materials.
Ideal for warm-ups and for leaving class in a cocoon of softness, the warm-up dance overalls should not be restricted to the dance studio. They are in fact a comfy basic with a sexy side that gives a cool city look.
