To celebrate the release of Cinderella Diamond Edition on Blu-ray, Disney Consumer Products and Alfred Angelo will be unveiling a Cinderella-inspired bridal gown collection.
The limited edition collection includes five styles in soft shades of blue, (ivory and white are also available) and each gown was designed to represent the favorite Disney Princess in a different way. The initial reveal will take place on September 29 at the Chicago Bridal Market, where bridal shops and press will be able to get the first look at the collection. On October 12, the collection will make its runway debut for the press only during Couture Bridal Market in NYC.
Finally, beginning in October the Cinderella wedding gown collection will be available to the public at special trunk shows held at Alfred Angelo Signature and Partner stores in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia that carry the 2013 bridal line.
Says Michael Shettel, vice president of design, on the collection:
Ever since her launch onto the silver screen in 1950 girls around the world have grown up with Cinderella and idolized her. I wanted to focus on many facets of her character as well as combine my research from the Disney archives. I had access to original sketches and concept art for the film. The sparkling glass slipper, Cinderella’s blue eyes and her blue ball gown set the tone for color, inspiration and themes that are carried throughout the collection. I wanted to make each gown a unique interpretation and give brides-to-be several visions for their wedding day.
