Los Angeles, CA, United States (CNS) – Fashion designer Sue Wong is getting into the Disney spirit. Wong announced on Friday that she will be launching a new high-end dress line, Sue Wong for Walt Disney Signature. The new line, developed in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, will hit stores in February of 2010 as a special limited edition collection for Spring 2010.
The line comes just in time for Tim Burton’s highly anticipated film that hits the big screen on March 5, 2010. The new film will feature all of the favorite characters from the classic Lewis Carroll tales.
Sue Wong for Walt Disney will feature unique details inspired by the film such as Victorian antique lace and vibrant details that are combined with Wong’s signature style of romance, femininity and hand-craftsmanship. Key characters that influence the collection include Alice, the Red Queen, the White Queen and the White Rabbit.
“I have long been mesmerized by the fantastical tales of Alice and her surrealistic adventures in Wonderland and am thrilled to be collaborating with Disney on this project,” explains designer Sue Wong. “This classic story, along with Tim Burton’s inspired interpretation, lends itself especially well to my design aesthetic, which is whimsical and fun, while adding yet another element of creativity and expression to my artistic process. It is an honor to help bring this marvelous tale to life.”
“Disney has been influencing fashion trends for several years thanks in part to the universal appeal of our characters and to the inspiration from such creative works of art as Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland,” said Robert Oberschelp, director, Disney Lifestyle Collections for Disney Consumer Products in a press release. “Our collaborations with top designers like Sue Wong have also enabled us to keep our lifestyle collections fresh and vibrant serving up an aspirational effect with consumers and Disney fans of all ages.”
The new collection isn’t cheap and ranges from $329 to $609 and will be available in high-end department stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom’s, Lord and Taylor and Macy’s. The line can also be purchased online at SueWong.com.
