Inspired by the film's "Pastoral Symphony" vignette, Katrantzou embroidered her ensembles with direct screenshots from the movie, including the famous flirty centaurs, splashy mermaids, and a horde of angry pixies.

And while true Disney junkies might recognize a certain floral print from Alice in Wonderland instead of Fantasia (guilty), we can still be impressed by the amazing detail on these garments, which basically require full-time fairy godmothers to stitch, swatch, and sew every inch.

This is not a see-now-buy-now situation, but if you want to get a jump on the trend, you can try hunting down a vintage Fantasia track jacket, which costs about $179, but doesn't have any flying horses.
