MINNIE MOUSE PRESENTATION
(Spring/Summer 2015 Collection)
Walt Disney’s Minnie Mouse is a funny mouse cartoon character; who has stolen the hearts of many children since 1928 from the show Mickey Mouse. Minnie Mouse’s dressing style was inspired by “flapper” girl from the 1920 with short skirts and bob haircuts. Minnie Mouse’s main outfit over the years had some few tiny changes and today she is featured with a short polka-dotted dress with a matching bow and white gloves. This year, at David Pecaut Square at World MasterCard Fashion Week has teamed up with Disney and Fashion Weekly Magazine was given the honour of attending Minnie Mouse Presentation at the studio on Tuesday, October 21 to view all six of the featured creations. The presentation featured six finalists of the Mercedes-Benz Start Up 2014 to showcase their final garments as part of a new project addition to this year’s Start Up program. This task was to create a new type of garment inspired by Minnie Mouse. The designers who took part in this friendly competition were Valerie Tolila of Vaiken, Eliza Faulkner, Chloe and Parris Gordon of Beaufille, Diego Fuchs and Helder Aguiar of BLAK. I, Laura Siegel, and Sid Neigum. Each six of the designs had their own unique touches, but the Alberta-born, New York-trained designer, stole the show and took the title home with his modular origami style dress.
