D23 Expo 2019: Making Fandom Fashion For Disney’s Aladdin
Gone are the days of just movie shirts and trying to make those basic black movie tees look good. In anticipation for D23 Expo and to celebrate the release of Disney’s Aladdin live-action release we talked to the creative teams in charge of making your favorite movies into bold and fashionable lifestyle choices.
D23 Expo 2019 is just a few days away and we’re already excited for the ultimate Disney Fan event in Anaheim, CA. In anticipation of the three day Expo, we have details about where on the floor to shop for never before seen collectibles and new items across Disney’s brands. Disney Parks, Experiences and Products will house retail locations within the convention through their shopDisney.com Disney Store, Disney DreamStore, Mickey’s of Glendale, and Mickey’s of Glendale Pin Store. Each location will present new collections that celebrate their fave characters, milestone anniversaries, theme park merch and limited edition collectibles.
Recently we talked to some of the creative minds that have brought to life distinct Disney lifestyle items and fashion to fans around the world with lines inspired by the Disney Princesses and the latest live-action release of Aladdin. Designers behind Box Lunch, Figue, Ruthie Davis, Judith Leiber and Enchanted Disney Fine Jewelry shared how they celebrate characters like Princess Jasmine and how they honor who she is in all of the pieces made inspired by her.
