‘Disney Princess Fairy Tale’ Collection by Alfred Angelo
Disney and Alfred Angelo introduced the new ‘Disney Princess Fairy Tale’ wedding gown collection on Saturday October 2, at the Chicago Bridal store. Alfred Angelo worked with Disney on the last collection of wedding gowns and they were all inspired from the familiar characters you could see: Ariel, Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine and Snow White. The lead designer of the collection was Michael Shettell. He said he consulted with his eight-year-old niece. She briefed Shettel on Disney’s seven Princesses and gave her perspective on each character.
Michele Piccionne, Chief Creative Officer of Alfred Angelo said of the collection, “We are excited to use our expertise to fulfill the dreams of brides everywhere who long to feel like a Disney Princess.” For example, the Sleeping Beauty gown was suited for a very romantic wedding, while the Cinderella gown was trying to show her famous glass slipper, being adapted to its theme. The gowns can previewed online in a video released by Disney Living.
