“The Disney Fairytale Designer Collection was brought to life by researching our Disney history to come up with the key moments in the fairytales that we’re featuring,” said Nomi Vela, director of design at Disney Store. “We start out with sketches that capture the moments, and then our designers create what these characters would look like if they came to life, capturing every detail like the velvet embroidery on a dress or the stitching on a vest. This is all done by designers and sculptures that love Disney and you can really see that come across in their work.”
The Disney Fairytale Designer Collection also features exquisite accessories, apparel and home and décor items, available online August 12 and August 19 in select stores – everything you need to complete your “happily ever after” style.
