Can you believe it? Minnie Mouse is now 90 years old! To celebrate 90 years of the famous lady mouse, Diane von Furstenberg herself designed a very special dress just for Minnie. Yes you heard that right: Minnie Mouse is now a proud owner of one of Diane von Furstenberg’s iconic wrap dress.
“They asked me if I’d like to do a dress for her 90th birthday, and I said ‘OK,’ explains Diane von Furstenberg, who grew up as a self-confessed Minnie Mouse fan. “Obviously she’s an icon and she had to have a wrap dress. I made a wrap that had lots of different cutouts so we could play with her dots and the colors of the dot and a lot of godets.”
Diane von Furstenberg has made sure that Minnie’s custom wrap dress stays true to her iconic style. It still features Minnie’s famous polka dots formed by hand-embroidered sequins. The sequins are embroidered on 100 per cent silk faille fabric in white and black. It had taken 35 hours and 15 people to craft the entire piece. DVF didn’t just design the dress, she even redesigned Minnie’s shoes!
Unfortunately for you designer enthusiasts, Minnie’s custom wrap dress won’t be put on sale. “This is for her only,” said Diane von Furstenberg.
