Minnie Mouse

Minnie mouse has been a constant reminder of my childhood. Through out my mum and dads rocky relationship and divorce Disney has always had a place in my heart. Minnie and Ariel were both my best friends who brought me to a happier place whilst watching them on screen and meeting them at disney land.

In August it was announced Minnie was taking over LFW. Several designers including Giles, Richard Nicoll, Lulu Guinness and Tatty Devine were set the task to interpret Minnie’s signature bows, iconic round ears and trademark polka dots to create one-off garments and accessories to be unveiled at LFW this September

Giles and Richard Nicolls designs

Today the garments were launched at an exclusive event. The two items that caught my eyes instantly were the giles dress and head band duo.

From the drawings I was eager  to see the outcome and Giles has nailed it. The hint of polka dot, Minnies face taking over the skirt and the studded headband adds a punky twist to the iconic round black ears.

The items are to be auctioned together with eBay to support the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation, an auction I think I might have to keep my eyes on.
