Trinity Laban dance alumnus Cressida Bonas is the focus of the new Mulberry ad, "From England with love," to launch the fashion brand's spring 2015 collection.
The short clip, which also stars British actor Freddie Fox, was created by BAFTA award-winning production designer Michael Howells, choreographed by former Rambert Dance Company leading dancer Martin Joyce and directed by London-based director Ivana Bobic.
Cressida, who completed her Diploma in Dance Studies at Trinity Laban in 2013, says in a statement: "It was great to be approached for the project and develop ideas with Mulberry. I love the story and the attitude they wanted to convey… Once [my character] feels that no one's watching then she just wants to dance for the joy it," she adds. "The setting makes her feel free, and using dance to convey this feeling works so well for the story.”
