Rose Repetto was the mother of Roland Petit, who married Zizi Jeanmaire ... the famous footwear brand is certainly steeped in ballet culture. So it’s fitting that Christine Blanc, former star of the Béjart Ballet and later a dance teacher, is at the Repetto store in Avignon to advise buyers. Budding ballerinas are duly impressed to have their pointes fitted by such a great lady. The rest of us of course can get fitted for a pair of pretty pumps
in any of 170 colours, or something in the ready-to-wear line to have us dancing down the street.
