Extremely exciting news just in, this London Fashion Week will see a spectacular take over from the one and only, Miss Minnie Mouse!
Yes, you read correctly, Disney has collaborated with designers, bloggers and beauty brands to celebrate the iconic figure in all her cutesy polka dot/signature bow/exaggerated long lash attire, for the ‘Minnie Mouse Must Haves’. After the week is over the one-off items will then be available to buy on eBay, with all funds going towards the Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation, an initiative set up by the British Fashion Council to help build and maintain the relationship between creatives, industries and innovation. See, we told you it was exciting!
Designers onboard to create all things mousey include Richard Nicoll, Giles, Piers Atkinson, Tatty Devine, Lulu Guinness, Katie Hillier, Terry de Havilland and of course the sublime Meadham Kirchhoff – who will reveal a truly special collaboration, inspired by every young girls dream, in their SS13 show. Kirchhoff and Minnie Mouse, can you imagine a couple more perfect for each other?
“London Fashion Week is the perfect stage for Disney, one of the world’s largest apparel brands, to put a spotlight on Minnie Mouse,” commented Marc Low, vice president of Fashion and Home for The Walt Disney Company EMEA. Too right, if any City can bring Minnie Mouse to life with vibrancy, eccentricity and a distinctive 2013 eclectic twist, it is London. And with these one-offs available to the public after, all in the name of charity, we are laughing all the way to Disneyland. “Oh Minnie you’re so fine!”
