Disney Consumer Products has teamed up with wedding retailer Alfred Angelo for a Cinderella-inspired bridal collection to celebrate the release of the Cinderella Diamond Edition DVD on Oct. 2.
The limited release line will include five styles, available in “glass slipper” blue, ivory and white. Each gown in the line is inspired by the iconic Disney Princess with designs ranging from ball-gown shapes to more modern silhouettes.
"Ever since her launch onto the silver screen in 1950, girls around the world have grown up with Cinderella and idolized her,” says Michael Shettel, vice president of design, Alfred Angelo. “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."
The Cinderella Diamond Wedding Gown Collection will be unveiled at the Chicago Bridal Market on Sept. 29 and make its runway debut on Oct. 12 at a press-only show during the Couture Bridal Market in New York City.
Cinderella Diamond wedding gowns will be available through special engagement bridal trunk shows to be held at Alfred Angelo Signature Stores and Alfred Angelo partner stores in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K. beginning in October.
"We are excited to collaborate with Alfred Angelo on another beautiful, timeless bridal collection and to bring Disney magic to brides on their special day," says Robert Oberschelp, director of Disney collections, Disney Consumer Products. "Cinderella's story is a classic tale of romance and enchantment, and Alfred Angelo's collection captures those magical storytelling details."
