Minnie Mouse is Fashion's Latest Inspiration
UK- London | Aug 16 2012 | (22:44:55 - EDT)
This London Fashion Week every little girl's favourite mouse, Minnie, will leave Mickey at home and become the center of the fashion world's attention.
Richard Nicoll, Michael van der Ham, Piers Atkinson, Bunney, Husam el Odeh in collaboration with Luke Hersheson, Katie Hillier, Lulu Guinness, Tatty Devine and Terry de Havilland will all present 'Minnie Mouse Must Haves' - accessories and garments inspired by the lovable rodent's famous polka dot dress, bow and big, round ears. A further collaboration with the wacky Meadham Kirchhoff will also be revealed at their spring/summer 2013 show, although details are being kept firmly under wraps.
All of the one-off pieces will then be auctioned in collaboration with eBay to raise funds for the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation, a British Fashion Council initiative to nurture relationships between the creative industries and maintain a reputation for fashion innovation.
All the designs will be showcased during London Fashion Week in September, before being auctioned off via eBay’s charity program, with proceeds going to the British Fashion Council/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation. The foundation, in association with U.K. Harper’s Bazaar, aims to nurture collaborations and foster relationships between talent in the fashion, film, music and art worlds.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with such visionaries to create these one-off designs,” stated Marc Low, vice president of fashion and home for The Walt Disney Company in the EMEA region. “London Fashion Week is the perfect stage for Disney, one of the world’s largest apparel brands, to put a spotlight on Minnie Mouse.”
