Mumbai: Day two at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012 in Mumbai saw the highly anticipated show of Disney Couture by Little Shilpa and Nitin Bal Chauhan, inspired by memories of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Internationally, Disney has successfully partnered with prominent designers like D&G, Alfred Angelo and Hayden Harnett to provide products for fashion-conscious young adults. Now, the brand has created a fashionable Disney range locally that will launch in India shortly.

"Mickey and Minnie have been an inspiration for fashion across the globe. We are excited to have Little Shilpa and Nitin Bal Chauhan lend their creative expertise to design this fun and stylish range for fashion fans in India," said Roshini Bakshi, vice president, Consumer Products and Retail, The Walt Disney Company India.
Shilpa’s creations for the label comprise funky headpieces, neckpieces, bags and shoes with clothes in black, white and red.

They integrate influences from pop surrealism and use imagery that reflects the relationship between Mickey and Minnie - playful, and about love and friendship. "My memories of Mickey and Minnie are in black and white. It was exhilarating to take inspiration from Disney stories to create this first ever couture collection in India," said Shilpa.

Nitin’s collection, for both men and Women, takes inspiration from the characters’ colourful motifs. While the essence of the collection is blue, the range evokes a bright and retro colour palette and features light and heavyweight denims washed using the latest technology, providing a unique texture. "We have all grown up watching Disney animation and reading comics, and every age group connects with them. The collection is fun and contemporary, keeping in mind today’s fashion forward adult," said Nitin.

The highlight of the show was when Minnie Mouse herself came on to the ramp, merrily skipping and blowing kisses to the audience, who were pleasantly surprised by her appearance. Among those present was Pooja Bedi, who said, "The first sequence was fabulous. The work and detailing in each garment is commendable. The second sequence where there were boys in denims and girls in Minnie Mouse print dresses was youthful and energetic."

Oh Boy that makes for a very long title. Anyhoo, Little Shilpa and Nitin Bal Chauhan presented probably one of the most fun shows of Lakme Fashion Week on Day 2, March 4th, 2012 in Mumbai. If you are going to put such an adorable Minnie Mouse on the runway, you’ve kinda won me over . Hello Kitty you are still my favourite :-)

Wacky, fun and crazy. The fashion show started with some over the top creations featuring large head pieces and oversized accessories. The designers also presented a selection of wearable denim looks with prominent Minnie and Mickey Mouse faces. I quite liked the runway with the Disney characters on it. :-)
