Minnie Mouse the original style icon, had her own dedicated pop up exhibition at London fashion week at the Blacks Members Club, Dean Street, in collaboration with the British fashion council. Photographs from the 1930’s up to present day including archive imagery, sketches, and fashion editorials all displayed the fashion attributes of the iconic Minnie Mouse.
“The exhibition strived to show how pop culture can inspire fashion and why the London fashion scene is so good at providing a new and creative take on things. Fashion can be very serious, but it should also be fun, which is why this sits so well as part of our official schedule.”
Caroline Rush, CEO at the British Fashion Council
I previewed the event, and I was so happy to visit the space on the weekend. Spread over three floors the showcase started with the beginnings, through to celebrity encounters, ending with modern women portraying their Minnie Mouse style
“Most people are familiar with Minnie Mouse and her famous polka dots or bow, and love Minnie as a fashion icon, but the aim of this exhibition is to present Minnie in a different and unexpected light – seen through the lens of some of the most famous names in fashion and celebrities including Georgia May Jagger who created photographic works exclusively for this event.”
