HARRODS is teaming up with Disney this Christmas to give the famous entertainment company's fairytale princesses a designer twist. Designers including Oscar de la Renta, Valentino,Versace and Elie Saab will each create a dress inspired by an original Disney princess dress, and the finished creations will grace the iconic store's windows from November until after Christmas.
Ariel The Little Mermaid, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Jasmine from Aladdin, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Tiana from the Princess and the Frog will all get a high-fashion overhaul from the designers - alongside a specially-built 7,000-square-foot area on the store's fourth floor, which will house a Disney princess pop-up boutique.
"Each year we strive to deliver a Christmas theme that will inspire and enthrall our customers," Mark Briggs, Harrods' store image director, said. "Collaborating with Disney this year is an exciting prospect for the store, as it allows us to combine luxury and fashion with fantasy and nostalgia to execute a show-stopping Christmas."
"We are thrilled to be working with Harrods and some of the world's most famous designers to sprinkle some magic on Christmas in London this year," Anna Hill, Disney's chief marketing officer, added. "The enchanting stories of our Disney Princesses are timeless and continue to inspire girls and women across generations."
