We already know that a lot of designers were challenged to create clothes based on the fairy-tale, but not all of them are known.

I can’t say much more or show the dresses of the other designers, since they will only be shown on March 5th (date of release of the film and also Paris fashion week) in the window of the french department store.
The L.A. fashion designer Sue Wong didn’t wanted to stay out of these Alice in Wonderland wave so she designed a whole collection. The “Sue Wong for Walt Disney Signature” collection is mainly composed by high-end dresses. Not only inspired in characters but also in places such as flower gardens and forests, the dresses have soft colors and subtle details. The fabrics are very light, sometimes with lace applications.
Priced from $329 (240 €) to $609 (444€), you can find these dresses in US stores like Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Wong’s website.
