Mickey and Minnie Mouse welcomed Opening Ceremony designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim to a fashion show on Wednesday at Disneyland’s Toontown in Anaheim, California.
“To do a show at Disneyland has been something that we joked about, talked about, dreamed about; we said if we could ever do a show at Disneyland, that would be the ultimate ultimate,” OC Co-founder Humberto Leon said.
“We are cognizant of all the Mickey products and we wanted to do something that was very different; we wanted to make sure that in 20 years, when someone looks at this collection, they’re like, ‘Oh my god, I found this piece from 2018 and this collaboration between Opening Ceremony and Mickey,'” Leon explained. “We want to make sure that what we did today holds its own and is a stamp in Mickey’s history.”
To honor Mickey’s 90th birthday, the fashion brand dedicated its 2018 Spring collection to the most renowned faces of Disney – Mickey, and Minnie. It featured a lineup of Mickey-infused looks from cool hoodies, faux fur coats, wide pants, and accessories. Some of the collection is see-now, buy-now and already available at shopdisney.com or opening ceremony.com. The rest will drop in October.
Guests of the show not only enjoyed the runway but also got to explore the happiest place on Earth. Celebrities in attendance include Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia Holt, Maya Rudolph, Diplo, Jamie Chung, Laverne Cox, and Chance the Rapper.
