Black Sapphire Design is a small handmade company based in Coral Springs, Florida. They service the surrounding area's studios and dance retailers, as well as provide products worldwide through their website, blacksapphiredesign.com.
The company specializes in dance competition costumes, but also provides leotards and other practice wear for similar fields of study, such as gymnastics and ice skating.
Lindsey McCorkle, Owner and Designer, has been in love with fashion since she was a child. At age 15, she started as an apprentice creating costumes with a local entrepreneur, and worked under her for over a decade learning the intricate process. She then went on to become formally trained, earning her BA in Fashion Design and Merchandising, then working in New York's fashion district. Because of this experience, excellent quality and fit are the cornerstones of Black Sapphire Design. Patterns are always original, and costumes are created either one of a kind or in small batches in order to keep the high end feel of the brand.
