I could have sworn I came up with this idea last year, but nevertheless the genius people at Harrods did it first – Disney and 10 fabulous fashion designers collaborate for this year’s Christmas window displays at Harrods, re-creating the modern day fairytale princess’ and their gowns!
I went to see them last week and they are so much more elaborate than I thought they would be. Harrods even have a Disney Boutique inside where you can dress up as your favourite Disney character (I’d like to point out I’m 23 and I still would).
Cinderella by Versace
Snow White by Oscar De La Renta
Personally I would have preferred to see the whole dress in the middle of the window rather than stuffed in the left hand corner..
Jasmine by Escada
Tiana by Ralph & Russo
Belle by Valentino
Pocahontas by Roberto Cavalli
Rapunzel by Jenny Packham
Mulan by Missoni
Ariel by Marchesa (perfect match!)
and my favourite – Aurora by Elie Saab
I think the Little Mermaid x Marchesa is the best match, with Pocahontas coming in a close second. I absolutely adore the Elie Saab dress but I I think Lanvin or Viktor & Rolf would have been more interesting to see.
ANYWAY, you should all go see it because it’s very pretty and christmassy.
