Fashion shows are already regimented and chaotic, but what happens when the fashion show ends up at Disneyland? Complete insanity? Turns out the well-oiled Disney machine makes the experience a smooth and organized show, and because childlike wonder comes into play, you have a hell of a good time.
Opening Ceremony hosted its Spring 2018 fashion show, which was inspired by the '60s and '70s, at Mickey's Toontown in Disneyland, allowing attendees to take over the park after hours for what it deemed "The Happiest Show on Earth." We're sure many of you are wondering why, as did we. Turns out, in addition to showcasing their own collection, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim collaborated with Disney on a second collection inspired by Mickey himself. The Mickey True Original collection includes the iconic Disney star printed on tees, silk dresses, denim jackets, sweaters, and windbreakers.
The collaboration makes sense for the designers, who both grew up in California — Humberto even sported a Mickey Mouse tie and cummerbund to his prom. Disney has some of the most loyal, die-hard fans, and the House of Mouse brought out a variety of celebrities for the show, including Chance the Rapper, who was spotted at the park earlier in the day with his family, Diplo, Laverne Cox, Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen, Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia Holt, Jamie Chung, and even Donald Duck.
