Minnie Mouse in Lanvin

Lanvin and Disney have released a new video showing Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz designing a special dress for Minnie Mouse.

Wearing her classic polka dot dress Minnie hops in a vintage Cadillac and is driven from her home at Disneyland Paris to the Lanvin headquarters in the center of Paris.

Taking a tour of the Lanvin studios, Minnie picks out a couple of things she likes and watches as the design team work fitting garments to a model.

Then the designer and the fashion loving mouse sit down to sketch out some ideas. Minnie is “definitely a true fashionista” according to Elbaz.

“When I showed her two dresses, she knew exactly which one she wanted. She likes to show her heels and loves earrings, jewelry, colors and everything that sparkles.”

Back at Disneyland a seamstress creates Elbaz’s design before the final fitting takes place with Lanvin team and Minnie can enjoy her midnight blue dress. Disney has announced that Minnie will be leading the proceedings in a fashion show held at the theme park on March 23.
