Minnie Mouse: how the Disney cartoon influenced fashion

A new exhibition, Minnie: Style Icon, opens tomorrow as part of London fashion week and charts the way Minnie Mouse has influenced fashion. Which she has, from her trademark polka dot skirt inspired by Coco Chanel to her pillbox flower hat and ‘Easy Jersey’ collection. The exhibition chronicles her looks from the 1930s to the present day, with shots by Georgia May Jagger and Herb Ritts alongside her appearance on the cover of Love. Disney’s greatest fashion icon. Who would have thought it?

Minnie: Style Icon is at Blacks Club, 67 Dean Street, London W1, 18-20 September
