Fashion And Disney Are Having A Love-In

From Aladdin to Mickey and everything inbetween...


Disney and fashion go hand in hand, you only need to look at the number of Elsa-inspired wedding dresses to know that our inner child/wannabe princess is vehemently alive.  

But it's not just the play dress up this season; some of fashion's biggest heavy weights are letting their hair down and reminiscing over their childhood days.

Aladdin hits the West End

Remember when you fancied a cartoon? Well here's the real thing and it's made for you – the adults who watched Aladdin on VHS as a nipper. 

The Swarovski-studded event (over 2 million to be precise) is the best thing to hit the West End in years. The Genie makes you belly laugh so much that it borderline hurts, Aladdin is a babe, Jasmine's got more Shakira moves than it's possible replicate. 

The costumes, the dances, the actual flying carpet – it's the best thing you will see this summer.

Well we want it all again now they have paired up with Disney to launch the first of their collaborations for the autumn/winter season – Winnie The Pooh being the first.  Your nieces/nephews /little people in your life are going to love you.
