Remember the Disney Princess Windows from Harrods? Well, the designer dresses that were created by top designers Oscar de la Renta, Versace, Elie Saab and more are now available to purchase to have as your very own.
This weekend, Disney showcased the ten designer Princess dresses from Harrods at the Disney D23 Expo in Los Angeles with the announcement that they will be auctioned off by Christie's to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
The dresses first made their debut here in London in the Harrods windows as a unique collaboration between Disney and Harrods, paying tribute to the most popular of Disney Princesses over time. News spread fast of the enchanting settings created in each window and soon the street in front of Harrods was overflowing with people hoping to glimpse a Disney Princess in an Oscar de la Rent gown, and so on. The images were simply stunning.
It's no surprise then, that the dresses should be highly desirable pieces after such a wonderful reception from the Harrods windows.
Matthew Grossman, Vice President of Corporate Citizenship, The Walt Disney Company EMEA, said: “The timeless stories of our Disney Princesses continue to be enjoyed by families around the world, so it has been fantastic to see their individual qualities celebrated by globally renowned designers. We are delighted that Disney enthusiasts and fashion fans will now have the chance to own a piece of the magic with this once-in-a-lifetime auction whilst also helping us to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity which we’ve been supporting for many years.”
Mark Briggs, Store Image Director at Harrods, said: “These exquisite dresses are really one-of-a-kind fashion items from some of the most celebrated and collected designers this century. They caused a huge amount of excitement when they were first showcased in the Harrods windows and we’re sure fashion aficionados around the world will be thrilled with the opportunity to own something so utterly unique.”
