Barney has Disney Window

The holiday season is just 10 days away and everyone is busy with their holiday windows.  This year the unveiling of Barney's is a brief cartoon with Disney.   Here we will get to see the Magic Kingdom and high fashion meet.  This year, Barneys partnered with Disney to produce a brief cartoon that merges the worlds of the Magic Kingdom and high fashion.  A animated short will play on a loop in the windows of the flagship store on Madison Avenue, and features Minnie Mouse's fantasy of playing a starring role in Paris Fashion Week.
Minnie spies a fabulous Lanvin dress while window shopping and begins daydreaming about rushing off to shows alongside other glamorous power players like Sarah Jessica Parker and Carine Roitfeld. After granting the photogs a few snaps, Minnie pardons herself from the street style fiends and heads backstage for make-up and hair with Cruella de Vil. Then, just after Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and Nicolas Ghesquière, soon-to-be formerly of Balenciaga, put the final touches on Minnie and Mickey's looks, Tinker Bell comes through with magical fashion dust (not the kind you normally see at Paris Fashion Week) and transforms her crew into the world's hottest runway models. Minnie struts in Lanvin, Snow White rocks Nina Ricci, Daisy Duck sashays in Dolce & Gabbana, Goofy stuns in Balmain, and Mickey Mouse kills his Balenciaga look. The front row is packed with attentive tastemakers like Bryanboy, Anna Della Russo, and Captain Hook.
The cartoon took a year to create, and is nothing short of a Holiday miracle since every participant who was depicted had to sign away the rights to their likeness and Disney's artistic interpretation. Perhaps that's why a certain American editor who is normally a front-row fixture chose to skip out the imaginary Minnie Mouse show? [via WWD]
