Later this month, a new clothing collection will arrive at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World dubbed The Dress Shop. While the name may be simple and bland, the designs on display will be anything but. The Dress Shop boutique collection will feature dresses and accessories inspired by classic Disney characters and attractions, even wading into the growing world of Disney bounding.
The Disney Parks Blog spoke to designer Donna Sorrow about The Dress Shop who said, “We designed The Dress Shop collection for guests who want to emulate their favorite Disney characters or theme park attractions in a fun, retro way.” She added, “These items aren’t costumes, rather the collection contains perfect outfits for guests who have a passion for Disney style.”
Outfits include nods to Disney attractions such as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, “it’s a small world,” The Haunted Mansion, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and more. Additionally, other dress designs were inspired by the likes of Minnie Mouse, Snow White, and Alice in Wonderland. Matching accessories, such as handbags resembling an apple, the White Rabbit, or a Hollywood Tower Hotel suitcase, will also be released.
Guests can view the entire collection when The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane opens inside the accessories boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs on March 3st1. They will have special activities that day and throughout the weekend to celebrate the new addition including a trunk show of vintage-inspired apparel.
Select items from this collection will also be released on March 31 at Vault 28 in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort. There will be a limited time offering of select items from the new collection beginning mid-April in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort. At this time, the collection will not be sold online.
