Vintage Couture Including the Disney Princess Dresses

EVENT DATE: 13 November 2013

As part of our annual Vintage Couture sale, Christie’s will be offering bidders the chance to own a Disney Princess inspired dress, designed by some of the world’s leading fashion designers, including Versace, Oscar de la Renta and Elie Saab. The ten dresses, created as part of a collaboration between Harrods and Disney and first showcased in Harrods' Christmas windows in 2012, are being sold to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Each dress has been designed to be an individual interpretation of a Disney Princess – paying tribute to the stories of Ariel, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Snow White and Tiana.

Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals with the broadest range of dedicated children’s healthcare specialists under one roof in the UK. The hospital’s pioneering research and treatment gives hope to children who are suffering from the rarest, most complex and often life-threatening conditions, from across the country and abroad. Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity needs to raise £50 million a year to help rebuild and refurbish Great Ormond Street Hospital, provide vital up-to-date equipment and fund research into better treatments for the children.

In 2008, Disney announced its partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, focused on raising £10 million towards the hospital’s redevelopment appeal. The Disney Appeal works across all of the Disney businesses to raise funds and provide unique and memorable experiences for patients and their families

Alongside the dresses, the auction will feature a selection of couture pieces by top fashion houses, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior, as well as a variety of luxury handbags by Hermes.
