Late last year, we got word at FIDM/The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising from DISNEY about a possible Design Collaboration in advance of the Blu-ray release of Disney's "Frozen II". The release was slated for the end of February of this year. A decade ago (!), we collaborated with Disney in another wonderful design project for the film "Alice in Wonderland"...

To celebrate the release of "Alice in Wonderland", FIDM put together a "SuperLab" where we had FIDM Fashion Design Graduates create Couture-worthy gowns inspired by some of the iconic characters in the film and story. It was such an OUTSTANDING success that here we were a decade later and Disney was excited about another collaboration.

As Co-Chairs of the FIDM Fashion Design Department, David Paul and I headed a special design project where we hand-picked 2 FIDM Graduates to create two Streetwear-inspired looks, inspired by the "Elements" (Fire, Earth, Water, and Wind) in the "Frozen II" film. In addition, David and I also created a Red Carpet-worthy gown from our line, NIKOLAKI, inspired by "Elsa". All the looks would then be displayed for a limited time at the Disney Store (a Window Takeover!) at Westfield Century City (will RECAP on a BLOG post here soon!)...

In advance of the project, David and I filmed some great segments for Disney, talking about the Collaboration, our inspiration, and yes, our LOVE of Disney and the "Frozen" world.
