This is another post for my transatlantic friends (and one which I am bitterly jealous about and on which I have previously blogged). The Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, are hosting an exhibition on Fairy Tale Fashion (15 January – 16 April, 2016). It looks beautiful and fabulous and stunning and makes me think of the amazing plenary by Catherine Spooner at OGOM’s The Company of Wolves conference.
(It also reminds me that I must buy a copy of Bloody Fabulous: Stories of Fantasy and Fashion (2012) edited by Ekaterina Sedia).
Not long ago I stumbled across a delightful article from 2014 in the Huffington Post about a women who dresses like a Disney princess everyday and this Tumblr on Disney Princess Fashion also has plenty of inspiration. Although Disney can be a little saccharine, the outfits for the evil characters are magnificent. When I was younger, I always wanted to dress as Maleficent and was very disappointed to find that the Disney store only stocked Princess costumes.
Going back to the Fairy Tale Fashion exhibition, if any of our followers on the other side of the pond would like to review this exhibition let us know. We can be contacted on the Facebook page or on Twitter (@BillBloodyHughe, @DrSamGeorge1, or @KajaFranck).
