Blog: Leonie BarrieA fairytale collaboration

Leonie Barrie | 30 September 2010

Every bride wants to stand out from the crowd on her wedding day...and dressing up as a Disney Princess character is certainly one way of achieving that dream. Inspired by characters like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Snow White, designer Alfred Angelo and Disney are launching a new collection of bridal gowns "for women who grew up dreaming of a fairy tale wedding."

It's easy to imagine the dresses as a cartoon-colourful pastiche of the characters, which also include Ariel, Belle, Jasmine and Tiana, but as the video below shows, the collection is surprisingly restrained. The range, which includes classic, grand ball gowns in layers of tulle and sparkle net, updated fit and flare styles, and pleated and wrapped bodices, will be priced from $599 to $1,199.
