Cartoon Network UK Collaborates With London College Of Fashion To Create Powerpuff Girls Fashion Items For London Fashion Week
Cartoon Network UK has announced a new collaboration with the London College of Fashion, student designers at the college are given the chance to create a Powerpuff Girls inspired statement outfit for the autumn/winter 2019 season and for London Fashion Week which starts tomorrow (15th February) and ends on Tuesday 19th February. The fashion items will incorporate the animated show’s message of fearlessness, determination and positivity and also the season’s current fashion trends.
15 groups of two to three students have already been chosen to create a brand new signature couture item. A shortlist of eight groups have now been chosen to have their garments manufactured and showcased at an event at Somerset House in London tomorrow (15th February).
A panel of judges including Jessica Saunders – the programme director for the Fashion Programme in the School of Design and Technology at London College of Fashion, UAL (University of the Arts London) and Leila Loumi – the international licensing director of softlines and health and beauty at Cartoon Network Enterprises will choose a first, second and third place winner and will award money to each group.
Commenting on the London College of Fashion collaboration, Cartoon Network Enterprises’ Leila Loumi made this statement:
“The original ambassadors of girl power, The Powerpuff Girls continue to lead from the front and inspire young women with their unique brand of fearlessness, determination and positivity. The property has found a very natural home at the heart of modern catwalk culture as style-savvy millennials seek out labels that resonate with their values. We are very excited to see how Britain’s future generation of designers interpret The Powerpuff Girls creating new collections that ensure that its social and cultural relevance endures.”
