Move over Miss Piggy! Minnie Mouse is the latest character to become a fashion icon as a number of international designers collaborate with Disney.
Fashion favoruties such as Richard Nicoll, Giles Deacon, Lulu Guinness, Piers Atkinson, Katie Hillier and Michael van der Ham – to name a few – will interpret Minnie’s signature bows and polka dots while Meadham Kirchhoff and session stylist Luke Hersheson will reveal a similar collaboration at its spring/summer 2013 show.
The Minnie Mouse Must Haves consist of one-off garments and accessories, which will be unveiled at London Fashion Week and auctioned together with eBay to support the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation. Don’t fret if you don’t have a front row ticket, as the pieces will also be exhibited in a standalone presentation during LFW. There are also plans for Disney to collaborate with key beauty brands to create Minnie Mouse-inspired tributes – the details of which are yet to be confirmed. Watch this space!
