Beauty & The Beast Fashion Collaboration @ MBFWA - Retro Sonja
February 3, 2017

Hello dears!

Last week I went to the Beauty & The Beast Fashion Collaboration show by Disney at Amsterdam FashionWeek. This show was a collaboration between Disney and 6 young Dutch designers. The designers all made their own design based on the movie. Inbetween showing their creations, the designers also were interviewed about their design. And there was a video in which the designers explained how they came up with the idea for their design. It was really cool to see how all the designers picked a different element from the movie as their inspiration, and how they all made totally different designs. In this post I’m sharing all 6 designs with you, and I will shortly explain the designers’ idea behind it. What do you think of their creations?

Liesbeth Sterkenburg was inspired by the adventurous character of Belle. She made a design in which Belle could go dancing in the ballroom, but afterwards she would also be able to grab her backpack, put on her water resistent coat, and go on adventure.

Zyanya Keizer‘s design is inspired on the opening scene of the movie. She got inspired by the blue colors and icecold vibe. She used a great amount of small beads, to give the dress this icecold frozen look.

Marlou Breuls was inspired by the movement of Belle’s gown in the ballroom. She shows this by means of a suit, which is made from a fabric which looks like it’s endlessly moving. She likes to use contrast in her designs. In this design, the contrast is between fairytale-like and scariness, which is emphasized by the fabric covering the face.

Boaz van Doornik‘s inspiration was the rose. He pointed a light on roses, to create shades on a wall. And then he photographed these shades, and made a print out of it. He decided to design a suit for Belle, to break the standard idea of Disney princesses in dresses.

Jazz Kuipers was inspired by the beast. Her design style is very edgy, and you can clearly see that in this design as well. However, she added a more fragile touch to this design, by using golden embroideries, which look like falling rose petals.

Elke van Zuylen‘s inspiration came from the first song in the movie called ‘our village’. In this song, Belle sings about being different from the other people in her village. Elke made a dress and a mantle. It’s a modern view on a mantle, with a bomber-like appearance, and also inspired on the kimono.

What do you think of the designs?

Love,

Sonja
