London takes the fashion torch off New York on Friday to kick off London Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2013 round of shows. This season Disney is shining a spotlight on their leading lady with the help of the LFW designers. Minnie Mouse’s iconic style will get the London design treatment as talents, Giles, Michael van der Ham, Richard Nicoll, Katie Hillier, Lulu Guinness to name just a few, have created one off garments to fête Disney’s chicest icon. Looks and accessories will be unveiled on Friday Day 1 of LFW and then auctioned off through eBay in support of the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation.
This year Disney is celebrating their icon with some heavy design talent whose interpretations of the famous bows, polka dots and red and white palette will be a fabulous refresher for all those who remember Minnie from childhood. The cartoon collaboration will continue when wacky design duo Meadham Kirchhoff reveals an extraordinary collaboration with the Disney darling at their SS/2013 show. So without needing a crystal ball it is safe to say oversize bows, polka dots and fire engine red might make an appearance on the high street next year- Mouse ears optional.
The Minnie “Must Have” pieces will be available at Auction from 13 to 23rd September. The Fashion Arts Foundation aims to nurture collaborations and foster relationships between fashion film, music and art talent in the creative capital of London.
