See the stunning Disney Princess dresses crafted by the likes of Marchesa, Versace and Elie Saab for Harrods
Harrods have come up trumps this Christmas as they’ve given the little girl inside all of us a festive fashion treat. The luxury department store is to showcase a selection of dresses themed around Disney Princesses – each crafted by the biggest names in the industry.
The likes of Versace and Valentino have joined forces with eight other elite names to create their own themed piece to ensure we can relive the magic of Disney. The gowns will be officially unveiled at the Knightsbridge store on 1st November, but today they have released sketches from each designer as well as a video featuring the dresses with fairytale results.
Elie Saab fell for romantic ruffles with an embellished dress for Sleeping Beauty and Marchesa took on the responsibility of taking Ariel from The Little Mermaid into the modern day and did so swimmingly with a deep blue silk dress.
Versace sexed up Cinderella in a golden frock fit for a princess complete with signature Medusa motifs. Where as Valentino kept Belle from Beauty and the Beast ultra-feminine with chiffon pleats. Rapunzel had her make-over in the hands of Jenny Packman who untangled herself from the Kate Middleton connections to make a pale grey dress.
Oscar de la Renta went classic for Snow White who wears a bejeweled bodice, while the Pocahontas-themed frock features prints and feathers created by Roberto Cavalli.
The job of creating Jasmine from Aladdin, Mulan and Tina from the Princess and the Frog falls to Escada, Missoni and Ralph & Russo respectively.
It’s pure fashion magic.
