Throughout the years as Disney has grown, showing off personal style has become a major part of the fandom. In the last year alone, Disney Consumer Products has collaborated with Coach, Kate Spade, Trina Turk, Sephora, Vans and Kenzo to put their unique spin on iconic characters.
Fans can’t get enough of Disney fashion news and trends and now they can travel the world virtually to see how Disney style is fashioned around the world.
The new digital series Destination: Disney Style celebrates Disney fashion around the globe and the first season explores Disney Style in Tokyo, Shanghai, NYC, London and Los Angeles. The five-part original series is hosted by top fashion and beauty YouTubers faves LaurDIY, Jaleesa Moses, Meredith Foster, Lucy & Lydi who give us a look into the ever-evolving Disney fashions in international cities.
Each episode lets you travel along with the host to see how local designers put their own twist on Disney style through international Disney collaborations, and fans get to show off their own chic street style. This series definitely makes you want to hop a flight and see the sights all around the world.
We were invited to the launch event where we got a sneak peek of the series, and a look at some of the cool Disney fashions featured in the show. The inaugural episode is hosted by lifestyle and DIY YouTube star LaurDIY as she explored the fashion world in Tokyo, at Disney Expo Japan 2016, Tokyo Disney Resort and more.
My personal favorite part of the show had to be when LaurDIY interviewed Katsumi Tsukagoshi, the president of Grace Co., Ltd. fashion, who explained “charadinate” which is when you coordinate characters within your own fashion. I may have audibly gasped when he opened up his suit jacket to reveal a Star Wars lining.
Destination: Disney Style launches on the Disney Style YouTube channel on Tuesday, August 2 with new episodes every Tuesday at 10am PST throughout the month of August.
Check out the first episode in the video above, and photos from the launch party in the gallery. Let us know what you think in the comments and be sure to tag @nerdist and @justjennrecipes on instagram to show us your own Disney style!
