Of all the icons scheduled to make appearances at London Fashion Week in September, there’s one quite unexpected.
Minnie Mouse, Disney character, takes center stage at the event, where fashion designers will celebrate her 84-year legacy.
According to Disney, inspired by her unique and distinctive style, the world’s best design talent will create ‘Minnie Mouse Must Haves’ one-off garments and accessories, which will also be auctioned on eBay to support the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation.
Look out for the who’s-who of fashion, including Giles, Michael van der Ham, Richard Nicoll, Piers Atkinson, Bunney, Husam el Odeh in collaboration with Luke Hersheson, Katie Hillier, Lulu Guinness, Tatty Devine and Terry de Havill, creatively interpreting Minnie’s signature bows and trademark polka dots.
A collaboration with Meadham Kirchhoff, already being called “extraordinary,” will also be revealed at their Spring/Summer 2013 show.
