You can now sign up for the Yumiko Black Label mailing list to be the first to know about new Black Label releases.
What began more than 20 years ago with a small collection of leotard designs has become a standard that has redefined dancewear. Yumiko has always stood for providing quality products, amazing fit, and inviting people to take part in developing a dream. Founder Yumiko Takeshima is the innovator of leotard styles that tell a story and the first to connect dancers with the ability to personalize their dancewear.
Yumiko continues to bring her more personal inspirations and ideas in her Black Label. These exclusive creations, featuring unique styles, specialty fabrics, and signature detailing, are separated into three distinct categories:
BLACK LABEL COLLECTION Imaginative variations of existing Yumiko styles, featuring specialty fabrics and contemporary detailing. Available in limited quantities.
BLACK LABEL DIP DYE Yumiko leotards hand-dyed in delicate, gradient hues. Available annually in limited quantities.
BLACK LABEL EXCLUSIVE One of a kind, original design pieces. Created from the highest quality fabrics for the ultimate, self-defining aesthetic.
