Fashion: Modern Princesses

As autumn and the festive seasons draw closer we are starting to see bits and pieces of the campaigns, collaborations and collections we have been preparing for since Summer. So far we have had Marilyn Monroe with MAC make up and Cinderella inspired Sephora pieces, come November we shall have a full view of the Kardashians and Dorothy Perkins clothing line and also the Christmas Disney Harrods display.
Although we've been having snippets and glimpses of the Kardashians styles we haven't had much from the array of high-end designers contributing to the Harrods artwork. Until now.

A video has been released which is fabulous and sketches by each of the designers have also been made avaliable for viewing and they are simply stunning.

The one minute or so clip is a dreamy fairytale mixed with couture paradise, the music paired with it is also tantalizing exciting and somewhat romantic.
As for the designers drawings check them out below:

 Rapunzel imagined by Jenny Packham and Belle created by Velentino

Ariel in a Marchesa gown, Jasmine in Escada and Tiana in a Ralph and Russo number

Snow White inspires Osca De La Renta and Aurora shines in Elie Saab

Cinderella dressed in Versace, Mulan in Missoni and Pocahontas in Roberto Cavalli

The pairings are spot on, Escada has used the juiciest of shades for the Arabian Princess and Marchesa has the ocean-like shapes and colours which suit an Atlantis born royalty perfectly.

I have to say I think they are all brilliantly created and you can tell the amount of thought and consideration each fashion genius has put into the designs.
My favourites are Pocahontas, Aurora and Cinderella. I love how Versace (as always) glammed up and blinged out Cinderella for the perfect modern twist. Cavalli uses his trademark animalistic prints to make Pocahontas look every inch the striking, sexy and fearless female she is.

The wonderful displays will be starring alongside a 7,000 square fit Disney Princess inspired boutique situated on the fourth floor at Harrods in Knightsbridge. 

This will all be on show for us 1st November, just a week away!!!
