Dont think the title of this story is true? Guess again, because you may very well see her in the front row during London Fashion Week. Minnie Mouse, the ironic cartoon character known for her red and white polka-dot dress and matching hairband, is the muse for several well-known designers this season.
The special one-off garments and accessories will be unveiled during London Fashion Week this September at Somerset House. All the pieces of the special, Disney inspired ‘collection’ will be sold on eBay to support the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation. International designers including Giles Deacon, Michael van der Ham, Richard Nicoll, Katie Hillier, Lulu Guinness, Tatty Devine and Terry de Havilland will create ‘Minnie Mouse Must Haves’.
So far no word on a Mickey Mouse menswear collection, but we’ll keep our ears open.
