DISNEY FAIRY TALE WEDDINGS BY ALFRED ANGELO CELEBRATES THE Blu-ray™ RELEASE OF CINDERELLA WITH THE CINDERELLA DIAMOND WEDDING GOWN COLLECTION
Wedding Dresses Available for Limited-Time Only, Starting October 2012
Philadelphia, PA– (September 17, 2012) Alfred Angelo and Disney Consumer Products celebrate the release of Disney’s Cinderella Diamond Edition, available on Blu-ray™ for the first time this Fall, with a one-of-a-kind Cinderella- inspired bridal collection.
This unique line of limited-release wedding dresses consists of five exquisite styles in soft shades of blue. Each gown represents the iconic Disney Princess character from a unique point of view, including timeless ball gowns that sparkle with every turn, and modern fit and flare silhouettes that look as if they were bathed in moonlight.
The Cinderella Diamond Wedding Gown Collection will be unveiled initially at Chicago Bridal market on September 29, 2012, where bridal shops and industry press will get the first view of the collection. The Cinderella Diamond collection will make its runway debut on October 12, 2012, at a press-only show during Couture Bridal Market in New York City.
Cinderella Diamond Collection
Beginning in October, the Cinderella Diamond wedding gowns will be available to brides through special engagement bridal trunk shows to be held in Alfred Angelo Signature Stores and Alfred Angelo Partner Stores in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK that carry the 2013 Disney bridal line. For tour dates and locations, brides can log on to alfredangelo.com.
Commenting on his design inspiration, Alfred Angelo vice president of design Michael Shettel says, “Ever since her launch onto the silver screen in 1950 girls around the world have grown up with Cinderella and idolized her. I wanted to focus on many facets of her character as well as combine my research from the Disney archives. I had access to original sketches and concept art for the film. The sparkling glass slipper, Cinderella’s blue eyes and her blue ball gown set the tone for color, inspiration and themes that are carried throughout the collection. I wanted to make each gown a unique interpretation and give brides-to-be several visions for their wedding day.”
“We are excited to collaborate with Alfred Angelo on another beautiful, timeless bridal collection and to bring Disney magic to brides on their special day,” said Robert Oberschelp, director of Disney Collections at Disney Consumer Products, “Cinderella’s story is a classic tale of romance and enchantment, and Alfred Angelo’s collection captures those magical storytelling details. The Cinderella Diamond Wedding Gown Collection is a fairytale wish come true.”
The “Glass Slipper” blue fabric is perfect for brides who embrace subtle color for their wedding. But, each gown is also offered in ivory and white for brides with more traditional tastes.
