Recently, Disney Consumer Products announced the launch of the Disney Royal Ball collection, the first line of Quinceañera gowns that are inspired by the inner qualities, personalities, and stories of the Disney Princesses.
The gowns are designed and created in collaboration with Ashdon Inc., a leader in the special occasions fashion industry. Each gown combines classical styling with elements of fantasy and magic. The debut line features 21 gowns, with two styles for each Disney Princess and a new gown, “la Corona de la Princesa” will be added to the line each year.
A Quinceañera is a coming of age celebration for Latinas that signifies her journey from childhood to womanhood. The celebration, which is similar to a “Sweet 16”, often includes a religious ceremony followed by a reception – and the gown is an integral and festive part of the celebration.
“The Latino community has a strong affinity for Disney, and the Disney Royal Ball Quinceañera collection offers another avenue to make the Quinceañera celebration even more unique and meaningful for Latina teens and their families,” said Gilberto Martinez Kladt, vice president of licensing for Disney Princess. “Disney is thrilled to provide young Latinas with the opportunity to celebrate the elegance, grace and poise of their favorite Disney Princess characters on such a special and momentous day.”
The dresses come in a variety of colors and feature accents of crystal, embroidery, and beadwork and are inspired by the Disney Princess characters Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pochontas, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Tiana. The dresses are available in sizes 0-20 with MSRPs ranging from $530-$999. For more information on the dresses, please visit wwwQuinceRoyalBall.com.
