Minnie Mouse Hits London Fashion Week

This September, one of Disney’s most-loved cartoon characters, Minnie Mouse, will be taking the fashion scene by storm thanks to an array of Britain’s brightest fashion stars. Celebrating Minnie’s timeless appeal, distinguished designers 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 Havilland will creatively interpret her signature bows and trademark polka dots to create ‘Minnie Mouse Must-Haves’ – one-off garments and accessories, to be unveiled at London Fashion Week.

If this original sketch from Lulu Guinness of her Minnie clutch bag is anything to go by, we can’t wait to get our hands on something with large ears and a red bow! The products will later be auctioned together with eBay, to support the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation.

Minnie Mouse has captured our hearts since her first appearance in 1928 as Mickey Mouse’s sweetheart – now leaving Mickey at home, Minnie is set for the bright lights of fashion week! EK
