When You Wish Upon A Star

It's finally here! Barney's Madison Avenue Flagship store is set to unveil a delightful collaboration with Disney, the highly anticipated Holiday campaign "Electric Holiday" today. 

To kick off the Holiday campaign was something that is sure to bring out the kid in you, a giftcard scavenger hunt (how cool is that.) Then one of fashion's biggest icons Sarah Jessica Parker is set to reveal the film to the public at Barney's window unveiling, which is more than appropriate, seeing how she is also featured in the short animated film.

The film ceneters around Minnie Mouse's dream of being in a Paris fashion show. Other Disney characters who make an appearance is Minnie's beau the legendary Mickey Mouse him self, Minnie's bestie Daisy Duck, Goofy, the infamous Cruella de Vil, and the lovely Princess Tiana, and the Fairest of them all Snow White, in which all of them will be hitting the runway.

Minnie is dressed by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, make up by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau, Mickey by Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Daisy by Dolce & Gabbana, Princess Tiana by Proenza Schouler, Goofy by Olivier Rousteing for Balmain, Cruella by Rick Owens,  and Snow White by Peter Copping for Nina Ricci while KCD’s Ed Filipowski oversees the production. But what is a high fashion runway show without it's front row of it list celebs, editors, and icons right? Well, don't worry, the creators thought of that too, so keep your eyes peeled for Daphne Guinness, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Franca Sozzani, Bryan Boy, Cathy Horyn, Carine Roitfeld, Suzy Menkes and other it list people and Disney characters through out the show.

Barney's will offer an exclusive, limited collection of holiday items at select Barney's stores and barneys.com, including collectible Vinylmation figures designed by Diane von Furstenberg and Paul Smith. They'll also have Mickey Mouse ears from Rag & Bone and L’Wren Scott, small gifts such as  children’s toys for the season, ornaments, and edible sweets.
